Queensland 0 for 58 (Renshaw 34*) and 263 (Hemphrey 103*, Feldman 52, Mackin 3-61) lead Western Australia 9 for 211 dec (Inglish 39*, Short 38, Swepson 3-54) by 110 runs

An exceptional, unbeaten century from Charlie Hemphrey and a career-best half-century from No. 11 Luke Feldman has helped put Queensland in control of the rain-affected Sheffield Shield clash at the Gabba.

Hemphrey and Feldman put on 87 for the last wicket in the Bulls first innings. Hemphrey reached his third first-class hundred while Feldman nearly set a new record for the highest score by a Queensland No. 11 in Shield cricket. He brought up his maiden first-class fifty up with his third six from just 37 balls before falling next delivery.

Western Australia's reply featured a lot of starts but no one could capitalise. D'Arcy Short made 38 at the top of the order before chipping one to mid-off. Josh Inglis finished 39 not out as WA declared nine down and 52 runs behind. All five Bulls bowlers picked up at least a wicket, with legspinner Mitchell Swepson bagging three.

The Bulls openers added 58 without loss to give the home side a platform to try and set the Warriors a total that could force a result on the final day.
