Tasmania 4 for 113 (Bailey 36*) trail Queensland 9 for 405 dec (Hartley 102*, Burns 83, Labuschagne 60, Stevenson 3-77, Perrin 3-84) by 292 runs

It was quite a day for Queensland's stand-in captain Chris Hartley at the Gabba, where he scored his 10th first-class century and then equalled the all-time record for most wicketkeeping dismissals in Sheffield Shield history. When he pouched a catch late in the day to remove Tasmania opener Jordan Silk for 15, Hartley moved to 546 Sheffield Shield dismissals, equalling the record set by Darren Berry.

Queensland had resumed on 6 for 251, with Hartley on 31, and he went on to lift them to 9 for 405 declared, with the help of the tail, finishing his own innings on 102 not out. Tasmania's first-class debutant fast bowler Andrew Perrin finished with 3 for 84, while Cameron Stevenson picked up 3 for 77.

In reply, the Tigers wobbled to 4 for 113 at stumps, trailing by 292 runs, with George Bailey on 36 and Dom Michael on 27. Michael Neser claimed two top-order wickets for the Bulls.
