Bloemfontein - The second-placed Warriors let the Knights off the hook on day one of their Sunfoil Series match here at Chevrolet Park on Thursday, after reducing the hosts to 135 for seven.

The most impressive of centuries by Rilee Rossouw, who reached three figures off just 107 deliveries despite the chaos around him, and the clean-hitting of the in-form tail-ender Dillon du Preez, who followed up his century last weekend against the Titans with an unbeaten 88 including 13 fours and two sixes, lifted the Knights to 268 all out.

Paceman Gurshwin Rabie was the pick of the Warriors attack, ripping through the middle-order and finishing with four for 63 in 19 overs.

Off-spinner Simon Harmer removed the lower-order to take three for 67.

Du Preez was then given the new ball as reward for his efforts down the order and he trapped Michael Price (0) in front of the stumps with his second delivery.

Captain Davey Jacobs was caught behind off left-arm seamer Romano Terblanche for 18 as the Warriors slipped to 36 for two, but the experienced duo of Arno Jacobs (33*) and Ashwell Prince (24*) had lifted the Eastern Cape side into a better position on 79 for two by stumps.
