Joe Van Niekerk scores for Toulon from neat Jonny Wilkinson chip

Joe Van Niekerk scores for Toulon from neat Jonny Wilkinson chip

Toulon came good this past weekend as they beat fellow big spenders Racing Metro 27-13 at a packed Felix Mayol in the Top 14 on Saturday.

Jonny Wilkinson scored 17 points once again, for the second week in succession, as he steered his side to the win with some nice bits of play. He was subbed with 20 minutes left in the match, but showed no signs of injury.

He also made a vital try saving tackle attempt when knocking the ball out of the Racing Metro players hand inches from the tryline.

Toulon captain Joe Van Niekerk, who missed last weeks match due to injury, scored his sides second try just before half time after Wilkinson put through a perfectly weighted chip.

Hard running left wing Christian Loamanu gathered the kick then fed Van Niekerk on the inside for a well worked try that left the Racing Metro defence exposed.

Toulon are now in fourth place (edit) on the table behind Toulouse, Clermont, Castres.
