Tigers tighten grip on trophy

TASMANIA is turning the screws and tightening its grip on the Sheffield Shield trophy against Queensland at Blundstone Arena.

At tea on day three the Bulls are 4-104, still 315 behind the Tigers' first innings score of 419.

Rain caused havoc earlier in the day, with a heavy downpour catching the umpires off guard and by the time the ground staff got the covers on the pitch a significant amount of water had soaked in.

It caused a two-hour delay, with play not resuming until 2.25.

The Tigers then continued to heap the pain on the visitors with some tight bowling.

It got too much for Nathan Reardon, who poked at a ball from Evan Gulbis and was caught behind for 13 to see the Bulls slip to 3-70.

That became 4-81 shortly after when Joe Burns was brilliantly caught by keeper Tim Paine.

Burns edged a Faulkner delivery, with Paine diving low to his right and plucking the chance just above the turf.

Peter Forrest is the only batsman who has showed dogged resistance to date, grinding his way to 42 while Chris Hartley is unbeaten on 10.

Queensland needs to push the pace of the game as it needs outright points but the Tigers have given little away, with only 44 runs being scored in just under two hours between lunch and tea.

Weather and light permitting, play will go to 7.15 tonight.
