Tasmania 5 for 210 (Bailey 69, Faulkner 61*, George 3-60) v South Australia
Tasmania had regathered some of the ground lost to the South Australia seamer Peter George when rain forced an early close to day one of the Sheffield Shield match in Hobart.
George claimed both openers and later returned to defeat George Bailey, who with James Faulkner had lifted the hosts to 5 for 210 from a struggling 4 for 98 when the former Redback Mark Cosgrove was dismissed.
Bailey's innings was more circumspect, but Faulkner played his shots boldly in another indicator of the allround talent that has seen him represent Australia A.
Dan Christian and the recalled Trent Kelly claimed the other two wickets to fall.
