Coach hails Hape's progress
Rugby league convert produces goods for Meehan
He's developing a better rugby sense and I'm pretty happy with the way he's going.
Quotes of the week
Steve Meehan has paid tribute to former rugby league star Shontayne Hape after he helped Bath to a thrilling 24-21 EDF Energy Cup victory over Sale.
The 27-year-old centre scored a vital try from close range to give Bath the lead after they fought back from 13-0 down in the second-half at Edgeley Park on Friday.
Head coach Meehan said he was pleased with the Kiwi's progress since he switched codes to join Bath from Bradford Bulls in the summer.
"I thought Shontayne was very strong defensively tonight and did some good things in attack," he said.
"He's developing a better rugby sense and I'm pretty happy with the way he's going.
"He didn't look like a convert at all but we've got to be patient with him."
"It was a great feeling to score," added Hape, who notched up 85 tries in 136 games during his time with the Bulls.
"I came out here and I wanted to achieve certain things. One of them was to score a try and it was great playing off Eliota (Fuimaono-Sapolu).
"He picked my run beautifully and I thought he played outstandingly tonight. It was good for the young guys to get out there and show what they can do."
Sale director of rugby Philippe Saint-Andre admitted a fourth defeat in five games for the club had left his men in sombre mood.
"It's not nice to lose at home again and the players are very down in the dressing room," he said
"But we had a very young front row out there and we need to take a lot of positives from it."
