Number 3 Truloff joined Collins at the crease with Collins passing 50 but he was too removed LBW by Abbey for 70 with the score now 2-118. McGiffin came and went for a brisk 21 caught behind, then Dennien and the in-from Sippel fell in quick succession with the score now 5-190. Paddy Dooley then provided a solid partnership of 65 with Truloff who had passed 50. The second new ball bought about the wicket of Dooley for a solid 35 with the score now 6-255. Tom Whitney batted with Truloff until the last over over the day making 17 and Truloff ended the day 115 not out which was back to back centuries. Wests closed the day at 8-314.
