Winning anniversary for Wilkinson

Jonny Wilkinson kicked all five penalties as his Toulon side beat Perpignan 15-9 in Top 14 action on the 10th anniversary of England's World Cup success.

Toulon captain Wilkinson, who scored the winning drop goal in the last minute of extra time against Australia a decade ago, kicked Toulon into a 15-3 lead before they hung on in the second half of a tough battle which featured several penalties and a handful of injuries on both sides.

The win sees Toulon extend their lead at the top of the table to four points ahead of the weekend's other fixtures.
