Yeoval product Chris Tremain led the charge on Tuesday before the batsmen took over to help Victoria continue its strong start to the 2018-19 season.
Tremain claimed four Western Australian wickets to open the Sheffield Shield season on Tuesday, continuing his love affair with the WACA pitch.
Victoria dismissed the Warriors for 208 before taking complete control of the match on day two following a Will Pucovski century.
Having taken his first career 10-wicket haul in a match in Perth last year, Tremain took 4-37 through a good mix of bowling short and on a good length.
Tremain's short-pitched ball proved troubling for WA's batsmen, especially tailender Matt Kelly who took a blow that ended his match, but that enabled him to be effective getting the ball further up.
Having taken 129 wickets across the past three seasons, Tremain again sent a reminder to national selectors that his Test debut shouldn't be too far away.
But he was just happy with the way his approach worked.
"The best thing about being here is that you can use the one that goes over their head and mix up their feet a little bit," Tremain said.
"You can get carried away with it a little bit as well here and we have to make sure when we do get up in the board room and push them back, that we're still effective with our full balls.
"It is great fun being a fast bowler and getting to bowl bouncers and seeing them fly through to the keeper, but you have to make sure when you get it in their half it is in the right spots and with the right energy on it."
Tremain and his Victorian teammates entered the Shield season on a high after winning the one-day domestic competition. But the man who made his senior cricketing debut in the RSL-Whitney Cup is confident that even when things get tougher, the character in the group will shine through.
"It always has been a good feeling and we're a pretty combative bunch with each other, which you can see in the warm up games we play even," Tremain said.
"We will have some rough times and every team and every player does, but we'll weather those storms when they pop up.
"But the good teams seem to be able to weather them better and come out the other end quicker and better for it. I think we've got the group that when we do get tested, we can thrive."
