Mark Cameron gained four wickets as New South Wales shut down Tasmania's push for survival to gain a 114-run win. The Blues, who were in control from the first day, are still in fifth, but the success leaves them an outright victory away from drawing level with second-placed Queensland.

The Tigers were set an unlikely 351 after New South Wales declared on their overnight score of 5 for 157, leaving Phillip Hughes unbeaten on 82. Jonathan Wells provided the brightest spark for the visitors with 85, but when he fell at 5 for 143 all they could do was try to hang on.

Luke Butterworth (47) and Gerard Denton (30) held firm for 20.2 overs in a ninth-wicket stand of 61 that could only delay the defeat. Cameron, who finished with 4 for 51, ended the game by picking up Butterworth - he fell to an outstanding take from Hughes - and bowling Denton in consecutive overs as Tasmania were dismissed for 236.

Burt Cockley took a couple of important top-order wickets while the offspinner Nathan Hauritz added two victims to his four in the first innings. It was an encouraging haul for Hauritz ahead of the naming of the Test squad for South Africa.
