New South Wales 0 for 1 trail Queensland 240 (Street 58, Conway 5-15, Hatcher 3-40) by 239 runs
Harry Conway took four wickets in an over to wrap up Queensland's first innings on the opening day at the SCG and finished with 5 for 15 as tournament leaders New South Wales took the honours.
Conway ripped through the lower order as Queensland went form 6 for 240 to 240 all out in the space of six deliveries. It was the third five-wicket haul Conway had taken against them this season following figures of 5 for 17 and 5 for 39 at the Gabba in October.
The dramatic conclusion to proceedings came at the end of a steady ebb and flow throughout the day as New South Wales worked hard for their successes after Queensland won the toss.
Bryce Street and Matt Renshaw added 50 for the first wicket before Renshaw became Liam Hatcher's maiden first-class wicket when he edged to third slip. This is Hatcher's first Sheffield Shield match but second first-class outing, the previous one coming four years ago for the Cricket Australia XI against New Zealand in a game that was abandoned with the CA XI 1 for 503 when the pitch at Blacktown broke up.
Hatcher finished with tidy figures of 3 for 40 after also claiming Street, caught at deep square for a 200-ball 58, and Sam Heazlett caught at second slip.
Usman Khawaja's lean first-class season continued when he was given caught behind although, not for the first time this summer, he did not look thrilled with the decision.
When Jack Wildermuth drove Steve O'Keefe to cover Queensland were struggling on 6 for 178 but Jimmy Peirson and Michael Neser added 62 for the eighth wicket and it appeared the visitors had a chance to push for 300. Then Neser edged Conway to second slip and rest happened in the blink of an eye.
