Ouytstanding victory by NSW. Their FRC season hung in the balance tonight having lost three on the trot but they've beaten the ladder leaders to stay in the hunt for the final.

It was a brilliant 89 run stand by Ben Rohrer and Steve Smith which swung the chase the Blues way before Dave Warner's cameo sealed the win.

Great win by the Blues tonight. Steve Smith named Man of the match. Join us on Sunday for a day night clash at Bellerive. Tasmania hosting WA. Good night.
