FIRST-CLASS CENTURIES
FOR QUEENSLAND

Greg Moller ended a three-year absence from the first-class arena in magnificent style when he posted his maiden century for the Queensland Bulls in the BUPA Sheffield Shield against the WA Warriors at the Gabba in February 2013. Having scored 417 runs at 21.9 in 11 first-class matches between February 2007 and December 2009, the 30-year-old made a comeback that dreams are made of. After a neat 44 in the first innings in what was easily the Bulls' highest opening partnertship of the season, he made 120 in the second innings to etch his name onto the Queensland Honour Board. Moller, in blistering form in grade cricket, looked right at home in his second coming at interstate level and looked destined for a prolonged stay at the top of the Queensalnd order;

Peter Forrest posted his first century of the 2012-13 summer and his fourth overall for Queensland when he made 119 against Victoria at the MCG in February 2013, while earlier in the campaign Ben Cutting blastred his way onto the Queensland Cricket batting Honour Board with his maiden first-class century in the first game of the 2012-13 season. Batting at No.8, the power-hitting pace spearhead reached triple figures off 70 balls, having hit 11 fours and four sixes, and finished with 109 off 78 balls (12 fours, four sixes). Wicket-keeper Chris Hartley posted his seventh first-class century for Queensland in the same match as the Bulls took outright points to get their sumnmer off to a flying start. In game three against SA at Adelaide Oval, Wade Townsend posted his fifth first-class century and Joe Burns his fourth as the Bulls took first innings points from the Redlacks in Adelaide. In game five against Tasmania in Hobart NSW import Usman Khawaja posted his first triple-figure score for Queensland in an innings which underlined his Test class. And in game nine Burns posted his second century of the season and his fifth overall against Tasmania.
