The Tasmanian Tigers have been outplayed by the Queensland Bulls, defeated in three days at Blundstone Arena by an innings and 172-runs.

The Tigers struggled against the Bulls attack in their second innings just as much as their first, bowled out for 115 in their second dig after making just 150 in their first innings.

The home side had no answers for the Queensland attack who bowled extremely well as a unit as Cameron Gannon (3-12), Peter George (3-25) and Luke Feldman (2-42) went through the Tigers lineup with opener Jake Hancock's score of 20 the best for the home side.

After surviving a tricky 9 overs the previous evening and resuming 0-20 there was hope for the Tigers to perform with the bat with clear skies and warm conditions on the third day.  However the Tigers had a horror start to the third day, losing three wickets in the first 40 minutes and the day soon got worse, losing 8-50 and then all out for 115 just before 2pm.

In contrast the Queensland batsmen impressed during their innings of 437 with a career-best 110 for Jack Wildermuth and half centuries to skipper Joe Burns, Marnus Labuschagne and Ben Cutting.

The win keeps the Bulls finals chances alive whilst the Tigers will finish their 2016-17 season against the West End Redbacks at Blundstone Arena starting next Thursday.
