Western Australia 111 and 496 beat Queensland 168 and 340 (Moller 120, Hopes 61, Coulter-Nile 6-84, Agar 3-91) by 99 runs
Scorecard

On a day when he was named in the Australia A squad to take on the England Lions, Nathan Coulter-Nile showed why he has excited Australia's national selectors, bowling Western Australia to victory over Queensland at the Gabba. Coulter-Nile's career-best 6 for 84 ensured there was no chance the Bulls would chase down their hefty target of 440, despite Greg Moller scoring his maiden first-class century.

Moller made 120 and had good support from the captain James Hopes with 61, but Coulter-Nile and the left-arm spinner Ashton Agar kept chipping away at the Queensland line-up with regular wickets. Agar picked up 3 for 91 but it was Coulter-Nile who removed the key threats, including Moller, who was caught at slip, and Hopes, who played on from a short ball.

Coulter-Nile picked up the final wicket, that of Cameron Gannon caught at gully, to secure the 99-run win. The victory was not enough to lift the Warriors off the bottom of the Sheffield Shield table but the even nature of the competition this year means that they remain in the hunt for a place in the final with three rounds still to be played.
