PARIS - Jonny Wilkinson kicked 25 points as leaders Toulon stayed on course for the French Top 14 rugby union final with a 35-16 win over defending champions Toulouse on Saturday.

Toulon stay two points ahead of Clermont, who earlier defeated Stade Francais 37-10, and are a huge 11 points ahead of third-placed Toulouse.

In a repeat of the 2012 final, Toulon were desperate to shrug off a recent run which had seen them lose two of their last three matches.

On Saturday, buoyed by the return of some of their Six Nations players, 33-year-old Wilkinson kicked two early penalties for a 6-0 lead, but it was Toulouse who grabbed the first try after 13 minutes.
