The left-arm tweaker, who came through the ranks of the Warrnambool and District Cricket Association as a junior, is building into some strong form with eight wickets in his first four matches and will be looking to knock down the door of Victorian selectors.

Jackson batted solidly to notch up 35 batting slightly lower down the order at five, while speedster Couch toiled hard on a tough day for the bowlers to snare 1-43 from his 10 overs.

West Warrnambool's Fletcher Cozens (18) looked comfortable in his promotion to the seconds while Dunkeld quick Vincent Huf snared 2-22 for the Cats.
