Queensland remain in the box seat to finish second and travel to Bankstown Oval next weekend for a rematch with the Blues, with WA needing a bonus point win over Tasmania in Perth on Wednesday to tip the Bulls out of the one-day decider.

If WA win without the bonus point, they would finish on the same points as the Bulls.

WA's hopes of pulling off a big win have been buoyed though with experienced Tigers quick Pete SIddle unable to travel to Perth due to COVID-19 restrictions and border closures after he recently spent a brief holiday on the Gold Coast.

The Bulls were unable to challenge a star-studded NSW line-up at North Sydney Oval yesterday. dismissed for 203 and then pushed aside by a Blues batting line-up that hit form after some indifferent efforts of late to chase down the target for the loss of just two wickets.

Aside from a fighting 59 from Jimmy Peirson, the Bulls batting battled to fire.

The two sides now travel to Wollongong for their final regular Sheffield Shield season match, with hosting rights and a spot in the Final up for grabs.
