England's Jonny Wilkinson has been included in Toulon's 25-man squad for their Top 14 clash with Perpignan on Saturday.
England crashed out of the World Cup last weekend to France and just one week after their disappointing campaign came to an end, Wilkinson will be going out to right wrongs against Toulon's Top 14 rivals. The league fixture is scheduled to kick off just hours after France play Wales in the World Cup semi-final.
Toulon have also included Georgian World Cup prop Davit Kubriashvili in their squad for the home clash with Perpignan, who are one place above them in the league. Ex-England international Steffon Armitage is also included in the 25-man party alongside former Sale forwards Dean Schofield and Eifion Lewis-Roberts
