Victoria 504 (Pucovski 243, Short 80, Stoinis 4-73) beat Western Australia 208 (Stoinis 80, Tremain 4-37) & 251 (Philippe 104, Inglis 69, Tremain 5-100) by an innings and 45 runs

Last season's leading Sheffield Shield wicket-taker Chris Tremain has picked up where he left off, claiming nine wickets in Victoria's innings demolition of Western Australia at the WACA ground.

Victoria's march to victory was halted by heavy rain on day three. But despite a sparkling maiden Shield century from Josh Philippe, the game was wrapped up before lunch on day four.

Philippe and Cameron Green put on a 78-run partnership for the seventh wicket to frustrate Victoria. Philippe added 17 to his overnight score to reach his century before falling to Scott Boland for 104 from 142 balls.

Green watched helplessly from the non-striker's end as Boland then knocked over Usman Qadir and David Moody for ducks before Tremain trapped Simon Mackin in front for nought to complete his sixth five-wicket haul in first-class cricket. Green finished on 35 not out.

Will Pucovski was named Player of the Match for his stunning 243.
