Donald boots Bath to victory

NZ Newswire November 24, 2012, 12:24 pm

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."

    Wow, is this the same guy that played for the A/B's. Go well Stephen, keep on kicking them between the uprights, just as you did that one in the World Cup final.

    Wasn't the same coach bagging Beaver a few weeks ago for trying to throw a miracle pass, which was intercepted and allowed the other team to score and win the game?
