Toulon too strong on home turf for Falcons

Jonny Wilkinson contributed 11 points as Toulon cruised past his former club Newcastle with a 36-10 win that takes them a step closer to qualifying for the Amlin Challenge Cup knockout stages.

The former England fly-half, who this week penned a new deal with the club following his international retirement, got the scoreboard ticking for the hosts after just seven minutes.

Jeremy Manning hit back for the Falcons after 16 minutes before Geoffroy Messina grabbed the game's first try.

Christian Loamanu then pounced with two quick-fire tries, with Wilkinson converting both to ensure a 22-3 half-time lead.

Wales prop Eifion Lewis Roberts charged over for the French side's fourth try to wrap up the bonus-point within five minutes of the restart of play.

Electric winger David Smith raced over the whitewash for Toulon's fifth but Newcastle had the last word as Corne Uys grabbed a late consolation, which Manning converted.
