Harlequins' hopes of becoming the first side to retain the Amlin Challenge Cup came to a disappointing end with a 37-8 defeat at the hands of a Jonny Wilkinson-inspired Toulon tonight.

The former England fly-half kicked 17 points in a faultless display with the boot, despite being replaced two minutes into the second period.

Tries from Sebastien Tillous Borde, Benjamin Lapeyre and former London Irish flanker Steffon Armitage ensured Quins were unable to repeat December's famous Heineken Cup triumph at Toulouse and set up a semi-final showdown with Stade Francais at The Stoop.

Danny Care claimed a late consolation for Quins after slipping through two tackles having taken a quick tap penalty after 77 minutes, but it was far too little too late for the Aviva Premiership leaders.
