Queensland had no answers to two innings of inspired swing bowling from left-arm paceman Sam Rainbird, whose 13 wicket haul for the match completely overcame the Bulls.

The Bulls will face a long off-season with the knowledge their last game finished in such ignimonious circumstances, bowled out twice inside two days.

It has been a fate that Queensland has inflicted on Tasmanian teams in the past at the Gabba, but the shoe was on the other foot as Tasmania were simply too strong across the board.

Joe Burns top-scored in each innings with 28 and 30, while Blake Edwards and Gurinder Sandhu picked up three wickets each in the Tigers innings that featued a superb 166 not out from Beau Webster.

Queensland will finish in fifth spot ahead of South Australia, with WA poised to break their longest ever Shield Final drought when they host either NSW or Tasmania in the decider next week.
