  • Full-time: Well in the end it was a bit of a procession, and Saracens were simply out-muscled once again. You have to give it to Toulon, who dominated the match and kept Saracens at bay throughout the 80 minutes. While Wilkinson was fantastic with the boot as always, Steffon Armitage was simply unstoppable, and questions will rise once again as to why this man is no in the current England squad.

  • Full-time: That's all from us today. Congratulations to Toulon for retaining their Heineken Cup crown, and farewell to Jonny Wilkinson, Steve Borthwick and the Heineken Cup as we know it. Thanks for joining me and I'll see you again soon.
