New South Wales 269 and 0 for 15 drew with Queensland 236 (Burns 90, Copeland 4-69, Coyte 3-41)
New South Wales denied Queensland first-innings points in their match at the SCG, which finished in a severely rain-affected draw. The Bulls needed to score 270 to take two points from the game, but instead they will enter the final round of Sheffield Shield matches level on points with Victoria and Tasmania, and four shy of the competition leaders Western Australia.
Joe Burns scored 90 for Queensland and was almost single-handedly keeping them in the contest as wickets fell at the other end. Trent Copeland picked up 4 for 69 but it was Scott Coyte who delivered the points to New South Wales when he collected the last two wickets in consecutive deliveries, the first of which was Burns caught at second slip.
Steve Magoffin was then bowled first ball to give two points to the Blues, who cannot make the final. New South Wales started their second innings and reached 0 for 15 as the match petered out to a draw
