Wilkinson boots Toulon to Montpellier Top14 win

Jonny Wilkinson kicked 14 points as Toulon defeated Montpellier 19-6 on Friday to consolidate their third-placed position in the French Top 14.

The win was sweet revenge for Toulon who had lost by the same score to their rivals in September, a match overshadowed by the infamous clash between Toulon back-row Olivier Missoup and Montpellier counterpart Remy Martin which saw the former earn a four-month suspension.

Both men played on Friday as Toulon went eight points clear of Castres in fourth spot in the race for play-off positions.

The only try of Friday’s game was a penalty try awarded in the 71st minute which Wilkinson converted.

The English fly-half was also on target with four penalties.
