Jonny Wilkinson has described Toulon's Heineken Cup quarter-final win over Leicester Tigers as a "great victory" for the club.

The fly-half kicked over all of his side's points in France as they saw off the Tigers 21-15 in the last eight of the competition.

"It's a great victory for the club," Wilkinson told Sky Sports News. "It was a big occasion and this is a first for us.

"The joy and desire to play with this team, the energy and togetherness we feel, is what has kept me going."

Toulon's reward for beating Leicester is a semi-final clash with Saracens at Twickenham Stadium on April 28.
