But England full back Ben Foden remains wary of the dangers posed by Leinster's midfield aces Jonny Sexton, Gordon D'Arcy and Ireland captain Brian O'Driscoll in particular.
"This final is an absolutely massive game for the Saints - in fact it is as big as you get playing for your club," said Foden.
"We all know the Heineken Cup is like football's Champions League and to be crowned the Kings of Europe is such a huge honour.
"We like to play a wide game and all the signs are that it is going to be a brilliant spectacle not only for the fans of the two sides but also for the neutrals at the game.
"However, Leinster are one of the truly greats in European club rugby, they are flying high and they are playing some great rugby - we saw their semi-final against Toulouse and that was one hell of a game.
"We will have to be right at top of our game if we want to win the Heineken Cup but, on the neutral ground of the Millennium Stadium, we have to fancy our chances.
"Leinster have quality players across the entire side, and have great strength in depth, but I guess their area around 10, 12 and 13 is certainly one of their greatest dangers.
"They also have a big and physical pack but the way our boys have been running lately we hope that we can find some holes out wide.
"You are unlikely to get many chances like this in your career - any number of players will never be lucky enough to be in this position - so you have to make the most of the chance when it comes and, although players like O'Driscoll and D'Arcy have done it all before, we are a young and inexperienced side in terms of a major competition of this size and importance.
"However, things have been bubbling over for the last few seasons for the Saints and the impact players like Tom Wood, Phil Dowson and Lee Dickson are now making proves the club has been making good signings and heading in the right direction.
"We knew after the Pools stage that we had put ourselves in a brilliant position for a home quarter-final, and then possibly the same in semi-finals, but now all the focus is on the final against Leinster and the chance for silverware.
"I have played at the Millennium Stadium quite a few times - including Shane Williams' testimonial match and of course for England against Wales a couple of months ago - and I really enjoy playing at the ground, there is always such a great buzz.
"I already have fond memories of matches at the Millennium and I hope I have even fonder ones of the stadium after the final.
"We all know how huge this match is for everyone involved with the Saints and that includes our fans. They are a pretty dedicated bunch and follow us most places so I am sure there will be waves of green, black and gold heading for Cardiff and they can be our 16th man and really get behind us."
