Western Australia won their first Sheffield Shield victory of the season and provided a promising start to Justin Langer's tenure as coach with a 110-run defeat of South Australia in Perth.

Langer will formally take the reins for Sunday's domestic limited overs match against SA but he was announced to be taking the role during the match, in which the Warriors recovered from a third day stumble to claim regular wickets on the final day and close out the result.

The young SA batsman Travis Head offered sternest resistance with a bold 95 that featured three sixes, while Michael Klinger weighed in with 56.

However the WA bowlers produced a strong collective effort as five men claimed wickets, Mitchell Johnson nipping out three of the last four wickets as SA went from 6 for 225 to 244 all out.
