Michael Hogan's six-wicket haul dragged Western Australia back into the contest before Wes Robinson helped them establish a small lead over Tasmania. The Tigers began the second day in complete control, at 1 for 146 in reply to the Warriors' 108, but Hogan skittled the home team and took some of the gloss off Mark Cosgrove's century.

Cosgrove made exactly 100 and was one of only four men to reach double figures, alongside Alex Doolan with 51, James Faulkner, who finished unbeaten on 52, and the No. 11 Adam Maher, who made a quick 31. Hogan ended up with a career-best 6 for 70 as the Tigers were dismissed for 258, although there were no wickets for the Test squad member Michael Beer, who took 0 for 27.

In reply, Western Australia started poorly when Luke Butterworth bowled the opener Liam Davis for 7, but Robinson and Shaun Marsh steadied the ship. The usually dour Robinson struck two sixes in his 98 and Marsh reached 50 before he was run out, ending a 104-run stand that brought Marcus North to the crease.

However, Australia's axed Test batsman failed for the second time in the match when he was lbw to Brendan Drew for 14. By the close, the Warriors had reached 4 for 226, with a lead of 76 runs, and were relying on Adam Voges on 36 and David Bandy, who had 7.

Good to see Robinson play his shots, he's a good stick when he's going. Glad Marsh got some more runs and really needs to be picked for the remaining two ashes tests and beyond. Nic Maddinson showed again he's a star of the future but hope they give him a little more time in 1st class. Hogan is very underated, he's really impressed since heading west. Tassie are still in the box seat for this one.
