Subiaco Floreat will need a strong batting performance next weekend after a tough day in the field against Gosnells at Sutherlands Park.

Chris Hansberry was the pick of the bowlers with four wickets, including his 300th A Grade scalp, as Gosnells reached 287.

Cameron Green showed his potential with the ball following on from his hundred last weekend.

South Perth has set University a tough task after hitting 290 on day one of their clash at James Oval, with Josh Dallimore taking career-best figures for the home side.

Dallimore claimed 6-98 in a rearguard performance, with Rob Jones hammering a century. Harry Podmore bowled 28 overs for the day in a workman-like performance.
