Bath coach Toby Booth paid tribute to Stephen Donald's coolness after the former All Blacks first five-eighth booted his side to a 21-18 win over English club Premiership leaders Harlequins on Saturday (NZT).

Donald turned in his best performance for Bath by kicking seven penalties from eight attempts but it was nip and tuck all the way against fellow-New Zealander Nick Evans, whose boot was also responsible for all his side's points.

"The one thing about Stephen Donald is that he will never shy away from responsibility," Booth said.

"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."
