What an effort from Cutting after Philipson's heroics. But the Blues hold on to win by six runs!

The Blues go to third behind the Bulls and the Bushrangers on the FRC table.

They only just hung on having had Queensland 4-58 chasing 293 but a maiden ODD century from Craig Philipson kept the Bulls alive before Ben Cutting wallopped 42 from just 18 balls but it was in vein.

Trent Copeland held his nerve on debut to close the innings and finish with 3-70. Josh Hazlewood and Nathan Bracken did the damage up front taking two wickets each.

Man of the match without question is Phil Jaques for his amazing 171no. it was the second highest score by any player in the history of Australian domestic one-day cricket. He is still a world class player.

The Blues go to third spot, South Australia remain fourth ahead of Tasmania and WA on the table.

Join us on Saturday from the WACA as the Warriors host the Redbacks.

Until then it's bye for now from the SCG.
