LILLE, France - English talisman Jonny Wilkinson booted 11 points to guide Toulon into French rugby's Top 14 final with a hard-fought 16-6 victory over Racing-Metro yesterday at Lille's Grande Stade.
Australian Matt Giteau scored the only try of the game, in the 12th minute, with Wilkinson scoring the rest through a conversion, two penalties and a drop-goal.
Racing had just two Jonathan Sexton penalties, in the 15th and 31st minutes, to their name.
Toulon will play the winner of Saturday's second semi-final between Montpellier and Castres in the May 31 final at the Stade de France.
"I know very well that I'm very lucky to play two finals, to play for this club and in France, a tricky championship," said Wilkinson.
"It's a very great privilege to play a season like this and I hope to see more of them."
Racing centre Henry Chavancy was left ruing conceding the soft try.
"It wasn't very good for us mentally and, in the second half, Toulon dominated and that made the difference.
"We couldn't put our gameplan in place. We're obviously very disappointed.
"Now it's time to study what happened, then some goodbyes to many friends - it's complicated."
