ALTHOUGH the semi-finalists in Menzies Shield are all but confirmed, the top three positions on the ladder are still up in the air following the first day of the final round.
The clash between competition leaders Toorak-Prahran and premier Cavaliers is very much weighted in favour of the latter following the Traks' disappointing first innings batting effort.
Cavaliers bowler Jude Fernando (6-61) led the charge as the Traks were bowled out for 151.
In reply Cavaliers are well placed at 1-60.
The surprise of the day came in Mt Waverley Uniting's total dominance over fifth-placed Mt Waverley Catholics.
Dismissing its opponents for 103, Uniting has already gained a sizeable first-innings lead and will press for outright points next week.
If it is successful in the quest, there is every chance that it could find itself at the top of the ladder, depending on the outcome of the Toorak-Prahran-Cavaliers match.
In most games throughout the competition, the batsmen dominated play.
Jake Attwood posted another century, making 187 for St Paul's Glen Waverley against Notting Hill Brandon Park.
The top team score for the day came in the sixth grade.
East Oakleigh amassed a mammoth 9-558 against Emmanuel South Oakleigh.
