Western Australia wrapped up first innings points and engineered a strong position from which to push for outright victory as South Australia fell 110 short of the visitors' 335 on day two of the Sheffield Shield match at Adelaide Oval.

The Warriors' tail crept up to their first innings total before harrying the Redbacks with the ball and ultimately enjoying a flood of wickets in the afternoon, taking 9 for 165 after lunch as the hosts were rounded up for 225.

Nathan Coulter-Nile struck first, bowling Michael Klinger when he failed to offer a shot, and would later return to dismiss the dangerous allrounder Daniel Christian. Michael Hogan and Michael Beer also bowled with intelligence and economy to strangle an SA innings that had shown promise when Daniel Harris and Callum Ferguson were together.

Among the rest only Tom Cooper offered much resistance, and his stay was ended by a legside catch from the bowling of Beer, who warmed up nicely for his looming trip to South Africa with the Australian Test team.

Gary Putland had earlier collected his second five-wicket Shield haul for SA, though the Redbacks were frustrated somewhat by a stubborn innings from Beer against the second new ball.
