Queensland 205 and 9 for 201 (Cutting 57*, Butterworth 3-39, Bird 3-63) lead Tasmania 260 (Cowan 82, Cosgrove 67, McDermott 3-48, Cutting 3-73) by 165 runs
Scorecard

A fighting innings by Ben Cutting gave Queensland a lead of 165 over Tasmania with one wicket remaining after day three of the Sheffield Shield match in Hobart.

The Bulls must win outright to stay on top of the Shield table following Western Australia's obliteration of New South Wales in Perth, and Cutting's innings gave them some chance of doing so.

Tasmania had looked likely to claim outright points when the visitors slipped to 8 for 118 after bowling the Tigers out for 260. Jackson Bird and Luke Butterworth shared six wickets between them, but Cutting found allies in Steve Magoffin and Alister McDermott to keep the Bulls in with a chance.
