Having impressed the locals ever since first wearing a Toulon shirt in league action in August, England's World Cup winning hero was again the star man last weekend as his new side bounced back from successive defeats with a fine win over Toulouse.
And with the latest installment of his new career taking place in front of a crowd of 55,000 (many of whom wore shirts emblazoned with his name), Wilkinson could not hide his excitement after he kicked all Toulon's points in an 18-13 victory at the Stade Velodrome in Marseilles.
"That was one of the best experiences of my life," said Wilkinson, whose playing days appeared to be in doubt after a dislocated knee cap prevented him from making a claim for inclusion in a third Lions squad earlier this summer.
"To play in front of such a crowd in a game like that was a thrill I did not know existed at club level. It was a unique atmosphere and we took real pleasure from it.
"It has been a long road back. There have been times in the last year I doubted I'd see a day like this again. But I always fought against that doubt."
