Victoria's batsmen failed to take proper advantage of the start their openers Chris Rogers and Rob Quiney had provided as Tasmania fought back on day two of the Sheffield Shield match at Bellerive Oval.

Needing outright points to give themselves a chance of reaching the competition final, the Tigers declared on their overnight 6 for 369, but were initially frustrated by a sturdy union between Rogers and Quiney.

They were eventually separated by Luke Butterworth, and regular wickets then fell across the afternoon and evening to give the hosts a chance of claiming first-innings points. The part-timer Mark Cosgrove chimed in with a pair of breakthroughs, while Evan Gulbis and James Faulkner also found a way through.

David Hussey was left unbeaten on 46, and his quick scoring on the third morning may be pivotal to the contest with rain forecast for the weekend.
