Western Australia 7 for 149 (Turner 41, Hopes 3-30, Neser 3-37) trail Queensland 391 (Forrest 133, Lynn 88, Behrendorff 5-105, Rimmington 3-74) by 242 runs
A Peter Forrest century and impressive spells from James Hopes and Michael Neser put Queensland on the path towards first-innings points on the second day in Brisbane. After the Bulls were dismissed for 391, the Warriors stumbled to be 3 for 13 and although they recovered somewhat, by stumps they were still 242 runs adrift with Ashton Agar on 27, Jason Behrendorff on 19 and the total on 7 for 149.
Forrest made 133 and had good support from Neser (40) in the lower order as Queensland built on their strong first-day effort. Behrendorff finished with 5 for 105 and Nathan Rimmington picked up three wickets but the early breakthroughs in Western Australia's innings meant there was no doubt which team was in control.
Hopes was on a hat-trick in the fourth over of the innings when he had Cameron Bancroft caught and Marcus Harris lbw, both for ducks, and although Adam Voges (34) and Ashton Turner (41) steadied, they were unable to build on their starts. Hopes and Neser each ended the day with three wickets.
