The Hobart crowds rolled into Blundstone Arena to celebrate the WNCL final, hoping to witness the Tasmanian Tigers chase their third straight title.

A picturesque sunny afternoon welcomed the captains to the middle where Queensland won the toss and elected to bat first.

Queensland came out firing against Tasmanian opening bowler Hayley Silver-Holmes hitting her for 10 runs off the first over.

Redmayne and Voll appeared comfortable at the crease until the 10th over where Sasha Moloney got the wicket of former Tiger, Georgia Redmayne (23).

The Tigers locked into action restricting the Fire to no boundaries for the next four overs, with some Lauren Smith magic coming to light with a cracking caught and bowled to dismiss Voll on 33.

Heather Graham produced a much needed innings effort with the ball, taking a 3-fa to Winfield-Hill, Hinkley and Knott.

A crafty run out from Sasha Moloney proved she’s still got what it takes, helping the Tigers restrict the fire to 248 runs.

Lizelle Lee and Elyse Villani opened the batting for the Tigers, looking to prove just how dominant the pair can be.

But the partnership wasn’t meant to be with Lee being caught LBW in the second over with just 1 run to her name.

The strength of Tassie continued until the 12th over where Elyse Villani departed for 32 runs, bringing the partnership of Heather Graham and Nicola Carey to life.

Making a very impressive 132 run partnership, it seemed like the pair were ready to take it all the way to the end but Graham found herself out in the 38th after totalling a very handy 63 off 75.

It wasn’t Stalenberg’s night as she found herself out for a duck, but it brought the always eager Emma Manix-Geeves to the crease, ready to fight until the end.

Nicola Carey proved just how valuable she is by producing an immaculate century, helping lead the Tigers to their third straight WNCL title.

The Tasmanian Tigers made history in Tasmania, showing just how talented and inspiring they are as a playing group.
