Somerset enjoyed the better of their pre-season friendly draw against Glamorgan at Taunton after rain washed out the first day.

The visitors struggled to 132 for eight declared after Somerset had reached 211 for eight.

Jacques Rudolph (32, retired) and Nick Selman (25) added 57 before a collapse, with Owen Morgan's 37 the other main contribution.

Peter Trego top-scored for Somerset, retiring on 46.

Ex-Glamorgan all-rounder Jim Allenby claimed three for 18.

Glamorgan begin their county championship campaign at Northamptonshire on Friday, 7 April.

Australian fast bowler Michael Hogan and South African batsman Colin Ingram are expected to feature later in the pre-season campaign.

Fast bowler Timm van der Gugten is in line for the season opener next month after suffering a shoulder injury while diving in the field while playing for the Netherlands last month.

Glamorgan are also hoping to tie up the signature of South African fast bowler Marchant de Lange before the season starts with the deal still depending on visa issues.

Glamorgan: J Rudolph (capt), N Selman, D Lloyd, K Carlson, A Donald, C Cooke, C Meschede, O Morgan, A Salter, L Carey, J Murphy, R Smith.
