Perth: David Warner put Australia into prime position to reclaim the Ashes in the third Test, making England pay dearly for its missed opportunities as he helped increase the lead to 369 runs with a rapid century on Sunday. (Scorecard)

Warner clubbed 12 boundaries and two sixes, surviving stumping opportunities on 13 and 89, and shared a 157-run opening stand with Chris Rogers (54) before lofting Graeme Swann to Ben Stokes at long-on, out for 112.
