Queensland 2 for 27 trail South Australia 223 (Cooper 63, Swan 6-69) by 196 runs
Chris Swan made life easier for Queensland with six wickets but then watched two of his team-mates fall to South Australia before stumps. Swan's career-best 6 for 69 on his return to the side helped dismiss the visitors for 223 at Allan Border Field before the locals went to stumps at 2 for 27.
Wade Townsend (3) and Lee Carseldine (0) were the casualties on a difficult day for all the batsmen. Tom Cooper was the best for South Australia with a patient 63 and lower order contributions were needed from Dan Christian (30), Aaron O'Brien (22) and Gary Putland (21) to boost the total.
Swan removed James Smith with the second delivery of the day, returned to upset the middle order with the wickets of Aiden Blizzard and Graham Manou in consecutive balls, and then finished off the innings. Scott Walter and Luke Feldman provided the support with two victims each.
