England's attack was made to toil during the first day of their opening Ashes tour match against a Western Australia Chairman's XI.
A century from Chris Lynn and half-centuries from Marcus Harris, Luke Towers and Mitchell Marsh helped the representative side reach 369-4 at stumps.
James Anderson, Joe Root, Ben Stokes and Boyd Rankin all claimed a wicket apiece for the tourists but it was a disappointing day overall for the bowlers on a batsman-friendly wicket at the WACA.
Rankin and Stokes, in particular, suffered some heavy punishment as they failed to take their chance ahead of the Test series.
With skipper Alastair Cook, Kevin Pietersen, Stuart Broad and Graeme Swann not risked for the match in Perth, Rankin and Stokes joined Michael Carberry and Gary Balance in coming into the line-up.
However Rankin finished with figures of 1-87 off 18 overs, while Stokes took 1-56 off 10 overs. Steven Finn (0-75) and Chris Tremlett (0-87) also looked rusty, but Anderson (1-31) and Root (1-32) had encouraging run outs.
Harris and Towers had got the Chairman's XI off to the perfect start as they put on 115 for the first wicket.
Anderson finally removed the dangerous Harris for 69, however it was not enough to stop the flow of runs from the representative side.
Towers went on to score a measured 77 off 190 balls before he was caught behind by Matt Prior off Root's part-time spin.
Lynn, though, plundered runs at will with his knock of 104 off 124 balls including 16 fours and a six.
There was some respite for Rankin, who is vying for a place in the Test attack, as he claimed the scalp of Lynn, with Carberry taking an acrobatic catch.
Marsh was next to get stuck into the England attack, with the 22-year-old Australia A international smashing 58 off 59 balls before Stokes gained some consolation - acting skipper Prior taking the catch.
Jim Allenby (34no) and Ashton Turner (17no) were left unbeaten at the close.
