Ben Rohrer’s 78, built on Daniel Hughes’ 124 from the first day, took New South Wales to 316 in their first innings.

Unbeaten on 62 at the start of the day, Rohrer saw New South Wales past 300 before he was dismissed early in the day. Joel Paris cleaned up the tail soon after, ending with figures of 4 for 61. Michael Hogan and David Moody chipped in with two wickets each.

In response Doug Bollinger rocked Western Australia early with the wickets of William Bosisto and Michael Kilnger off consecutive balls in the seventh over. Cameron Bancroft and Marcus Harris, however, steadied the hosts with an unbeaten 143-run stand that took Western Australia to 2 for 150 at stumps
