Tigers claw into Queensland despite Perren's 82
Tasmania 1 for 70 trail Queensland 196 (Perren 82, Marsh 3-23, Drew 3-45) by 126 runs
The Bulls were in early trouble at 3 for 35 and the end was also eventful as Brendan Drew and Dan Marsh sparked a collapse of 6 for 18. Perren's contribution included 12 fours, one six and useful stands of 58 with Lachlan Stevens (29) and 85 with James Hopes (32) before being bowled by Marsh.
Marsh also swept through Bichel and Nathan Rimmington to pick up 3 for 23 while Drew finished the innings with 3 for 45. Adam Griffith, who made the initial breakthrough of Jimmy Maher, and Ben Hilfenhaus collected two wickets each to complete a fine team bowling display.
Queensland's day began brightly with Bichel proving his fitness from a hip injury, but his selection was offset by the withdrawal of Ashley Noffke with a back problem. The first exchanges were also bleak for the Bulls with Maher departing in the fifth over and Hilfenhaus removing the dangerous pair of Martin Love and Matthew Hayden.
