Joel Charles top scored with an unbeaten 59 late in the innings.

Rob Richards (41), Jake Fawcett (36) and Donavinn Fryer (47) made handy totals.

Four-wicket hauls from the Tigers’ Matt Kelly (4-38) and James Roberts (4-69) were the highlights of the home side’s efforts.

Claremont-Nedlands takes to the crease at 0-26 this weekend having batted out the last eight overs of day one.
