Aviva Premiership: Bath coach Toby Booth praises Stephen Donald
Bath coach Toby Booth paid tribute to Stephen Donald after the New Zealand fly-half booted his side to a 21-18 win over Aviva Premiership leaders Harlequins at the Recreation Ground.
Donald kicked seven penalties from eight attempts as he went head to head with compatriot Nick Evans, whose boot was also responsible for all Quins' points.
Booth said: "The one thing about Stephen Donald is that he will never shy away from responsibility. He was very, very good tonight and showed his worth to the team. That has been very well received by fans and coaches and players alike.
"It was one of those really good team performances though. Everyone played their part. You want your big players, your senior players, your emerging players to put their hands up.
"It was a real team performance and a lot of people did that. They should be very proud of themselves. It was a massive performance on many levels.
"This is the rebirth of the new Bath, and what we are trying to get to. That should be the standard every week."
Harlequins director of rugby Conor O'Shea said: "It's going to be a roller coaster of a season. We just have to stick to our guns the whole way through. The younger fellows who played tonight will have learned a lot.
"The effort, the attitude of the boys was fantastic, right to the bitter end. But we have to look at ourselves. Every time we got field position and got points, we never dealt with the kick-off.
"And the number of penalties they got through our inaccuracy, clearing our lines, was just not good enough."
