Ben Foden Northampton v Gloucester 2014

On the verge: Ben Foden

Northampton Saints full-back Ben Foden believes his team can finally capture the Premiership title against Saracens at Twickenham.

Saints lifted the Challenge Cup last Friday in Cardiff to complete one half of a possible double this season.

Their task of facing the Heineken Cup finalists however is a much larger challenge, with the teams each winning against each other in the regular season.

Foden believes the wait though is over to finally deliver a major trophy to Franklin's Gardens, after falling short in last year's final against Leicester Tigers.

"We've been a team that's been on the verge of winning some major silverware but not quite getting it," said Foden.

"This club deserves it, we've been building through hard work, the coaches staff have really brought in.

"For the fans and everyone involved in the club, it's about time we take the next step and win some major silverware and that includes the Aviva Premiership.

"It is always such a massive occasion, playing down at Twickenham, it's what you aim for all season in the league and it's a special day. We just want to be on the winning side.

"This year, it would mean more than ever because we've had such a good season."
