Sydney:New South Wales broke through for their first win of Australia's Sheffield Shield cricket season here beating Western Australia by an innings and 134 runs at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

WA were bowled out for 148 on Thursday after making 137 in their first innings in reply to the home team's 419.

NSW owed their victory to a 10th wicket partnership of 219 between Dominic Thornely and Stuart MacGill, with man-of-the-match Thornely posting an unbeaten 261.

After that NSW's pace bowlers were consistently too good for the visiting batsmen.

Only former Zimbabwean Test batsman Murray Goodwin, with a half-century in each innings, offered any resistance.

Stuart Clark claimed 3-20, Matthew Nicholson 3-41 and Test leg-spinner MacGill 3-52.

At Sydney (day three): New South Wales 419 (D. Thornely 261 not out, B. Haddin 45; B. Casson 3-88) beat Western Australia 137 (M. Goodwin 55, R. Campbell 28; S. Clark 4-24, M. Nicholson 3-18) and 148 (M. Goodwin 58, B. Hogg 22; S. Clark 3-20, M. Nicholson 3-41, S. MacGill 3-52) by an innings and 134 runs.
