And now today WA lose outright to TAS for the second time this season (3 including the Marsh Cup one day game) after gifting them a very generous run chase after declaring in both innings during the game.
Has WA ever lost both their Shield games to TAS before in the same season?

I haven't looked up the stats, Beas, but I couldn't imagine that Tassie has previously done the double on us in BOTH the Sheffield Shield and one-day competitions in the same season.
Given the blazing start Sam Whiteman and Josh Philippe gave us (93 runs off 91 balls), I thought we were set for an insurmountable score of 350+.
However, it wasn't to be.
When you compare Tasmania to South Australia, the Tigers are considerable over-achievers.

Are you referring to Ruben Trumpelmann, Ark?
By virtue of his flamboyant name, he could easily become a cult figure if recruited to the BBL or even the Shield.

AD: yep, that is him mate, thanks for coming up with his name; Benaud always liked left handers whom could swing the ball inwards.

Being a long-time teammate at both state and national level of one of the great lefties, Alan Davidson, probably explain's Richie's like for this type of bowler, Ark.
