England flanker Tom Wood has been ruled out of Northampton's Heineken Cup final against Leinster at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday.

Wood, the Aviva Premiership player of the year, has lost his battle with the hairline leg fracture he sustained against Gloucester on April 19.

"Tom is out. He trained yesterday with the team but it's one week too soon," said Saints director of rugby Jim Mallinder.
