South Australia 6 for 209 (Hughes 92, Marsh 2-35) trail Western Australia 9 for 400 declared (Harris 114, Marsh 73, Coulter-Nile 52, Mennie 4-115) by 191 runs
Scorecard

Another aggressive contribution by Phillip Hughes not enough to prevent South Australia from slipping behind Western Australia on day two of the Sheffield Shield match in Perth.

The Warriors went on from their overnight 7 for 327 to a declaration at 9 for 400, Mitchell Marsh's 73 shepherding the tail.

SA's reply developed into a series of starts, Hughes the only man to pass 50 while the likes of Michael Klinger and Callum Ferguson squandered decent platforms as they closed on an unsteady 6 for 209.

Marsh followed up his runs with the wickets of Ferguson and Dan Christian, while Hughes was run-out by Nathan Coulter-Nile for 92, leaving him without a first-class century for the Redbacks this season despite going close three times.
