Dominic Thornely and his New South Wales team-mates piled on the runs during a massive first innings of 4 for 521 declared before squeezing five wickets from Tasmania in their unconvincing reply. Nathan Hauritz, the Test offspinner, struck three important blows to remind the selectors of his form as the visitors finished the day on 147, still 224 runs behind the follow-on mark.

After Jason Krejza managed 1 for 153 in New South Wales' innings, Hauritz (3 for 46) turned up to remove Jonathan Wells for 4 in his first over and added Rhett Lockyear (52) and George Bailey (23) to improve his side's position. Dan Marsh's second-ball dismissal to Burt Cockley was part of a mini-collapse of 3 for 9 and Luke Butterworth and Tim Paine ensured there was no further loss.

Simon Katich, who is playing his final state match of the season due to his international commitments, swept to 143 off 150 balls in an innings that included six sixes. He started the second day wanting to build quickly towards a declaration and the closure came at lunch after Dominic Thornely had picked up 110 not out.

Thornely's century followed the hundred of Phillip Hughes on Friday, while Ben Rohrer was unbeaten on 53. Tasmania tried eight bowlers but none could take more than a wicket.
