In the midst of continued uncertainty over the future of his career, Jonny Wilkinson has given a strong indication that he will renew his contract with Top 14 leaders Toulon.
The French club are desperate for the 33-year-old former England fly-half to stay on board but he has repeatedly delayed making a decision over whether or not to retire when his current contract expires at the end of the season.
Wilkinson kicked 25 points as Toulon stayed on course for the semi-finals with a 35-16 win over champions Toulouse in a repeat of the 2012 final on Saturday and admitted he wants to keep playing if he can still make a positive contribution.
"During my career at Toulon, it has always been a pleasure for me and I want to continue until the end," said Wilkinson, who joined Toulon in 2009.
"But the question that I have to ask myself is: 'Am I doing good things for the team?'
"I have to keep asking this question. If the answer is 'yes' then I am going to keep going. There are great players here and all that I want is that we continue to win, to do good things for the the region."
RCT currently lie two points clear of Clermont at the summit of the Top 14 standings. They host Biarritz next as they gear up for their Heineken Cup quarter-final against Leicester next month.
