Toulon captain, and England rugby legend, Jonny Wilkinson was full of praise for Exeter Chiefs after helping his side to a 14-9 Heineken Cup victory at Sandy Park.

Chiefs were looking to cement their place at the top of Pool Two in this season's competition, but the stellar array of stars from the French outfit ultimately proved just too tough a nut to crack for Rob Baxter's side.

A sparkling display of attacking rugby epitomised by Chiefs' young guns - and England Under-20 World Cup winners - Henry Slade and Jack Nowell caught Wilkinson's eye and he admits Toulon will have to be at their best in the return match next in France next weekend if they are to prevail again.
