Delon Armitage scored Toulon's match-winning try - but never had a doubt that Jonny Wilkinson would kick the conversion that would give them the lead for the first time with just minutes to spare.
The England duo got the critical scores that clinched a 16-15 Heineken Cup final thriller at a vibrant Aviva Stadium with Wilkinson making it an immaculate 17 out of 17 kicks at goal in the knock-out stages.
Pumas ace Juan-Martin Fernandez Lobbe won priceless turnover ball, Armitage declaring: "When I called for the ball I expected Sivivatu to be there but he wasn't.
"The moment it was popped up to me I thought this is my opportunity - if I can get the try we are back in the game.
"When I got to the 22 I looked around and knew I was in and then I thought I had to try and get as close to the posts as possible for the conversion.
"However, that was when I thought we have got Jonny - he will get it over from anywhere.
"We worked hard on our fitness this week and we knew that if we defended well for the first hour in the last 20 we could show our skills and Jonny put us in the right areas for that to happen."
The directors of ERC voted unanimously at a Board meeting to postpone all decisions including the release of further instalments of ERC's distributable central revenues to the six shareholder countries until 19 February next when the Board will meet again to reconsider the issue.
