Wilkinson stars for Toulon

Jonny Wilkinson inspired Toulon as the big-spending French side overcame Ospreys 19-14 to launch their Heineken Cup Pool Three campaign with a home victory.

Shane Williams looked set to give the visitors a famous result on the road when his try just before the hour mark put Ospreys ahead.

But Wilkinson's pass allowed Paul Sackey to cross for a match-winning try with four minutes remaining at the Stade Mayol.

Wilkinson kicked the conversion to add to his four earlier penalties, while Dan Biggar contributed nine points with the boot for Ospreys.
