WA rookie Clint Hinch­liffe (26) and An­drew South (23) will take to the crease when play re­sumes.

Joon­dalup opener Gar­rick Mor­gan was dis­missed for six.

A 91 from Bayswa­ter-Mor­ley first drop Jake Lewis was all that saved the vis­i­tors from em­bar­rass­ment with the side re­turn­ing five ducks on day one.

Josh Inglis (3-59) and Harry Larmett (3-27) were best of the bowlers.
