Tasmania 9 for 195 (Doolan 56, Bollinger 6-34) trail New South Wales 288 (Clarke 88, Rainbird 6-68) by 93 runs
Doug Bollinger provided a reminder of his renewed focus and fitness with six wickets and a sharp evening spell to set New South Wales on the course for first-innings points over Tasmania in the Sheffield Shield match at Blacktown.
On a day when scoring was difficult and 11 wickets fell, Bollinger's haul ensured the Tigers could not establish a meaningful partnership, despite a succession of starts by Ed Cowan, Alex Doolan, Jon Wells, Tim Paine and Luke Butterworth.
At 4 for 161 the visitors harboured thoughts of creeping ahead in the match, but Bollinger persuaded Paine to leave a ball that flicked the stumps, then had Wells fending a short ball to the slips. From there the innings spluttered to its current state of modesty.
Bollinger had earlier plucked the wicket of Jordan Silk for a duck with the new ball following the Blues' morning dismissal for 288. Sam Rainbird claimed Bollinger's wicket to finish with his own six-wicket haul for the Tigers.
