MARSEILLE, France - Holders Toulon reached the European Cup final with a 24-16 defeat of two-time winners Munster in a pulsating encounter in Marseille yesterday.
Former England great Jonny Wilkinson scored 21 of his side's points while Munster — appearing in a record 11th semifinal — scored the only try of the match through Simon Zebo.
Toulon will play English side Saracens, who thrashed last season's finalists Clermont 46-6 on Sunday, in the final in Cardiff on May 24.
The first half turned into a kicking competition between Wilkinson and his opposite number Ian Keatley, with the former England international landing four penalties and the Irishman converting three from three opportunities.
Wilkinson also landed a drop goal while compatriot Delon Armitage converted a superb long range effort on the stroke of half-time from just inside the Toulon half.
