Queensland's pace battery mauled the New South Wales top order to claim an easy 110-run bonus-point victory in their Ryobi Cup clash at the Gabba on Wednesday.
In a disastrous night for the visitors, the Blues lost nine wickets for only 69 runs in pursuit of an achievable total of 252 set by the Bulls.
At one stage they were 1-73 and looked on course to chase it down following a comfortable start from openers Brad Haddin and Scott Henry.
But NSW collapsed like a house of cards in the face of a fire-breathing performance from Queensland's pacemen.
Henry was first to go for 20, caught behind off Cameron Gannon (2-36), before Nic Maddinson (18) quickly followed suit.
Then the brilliant Ben Cutting (1-20) lured Steven Smith (three off 14) into an outside edge that went straight to Gannon at third man.
Two more wickets fell inside one over from Matthew Gale (3-48) - in his first appearance for Queensland this season and his first match at the Gabba.
The Sunshine Coast product was belted for 22 runs off his first two overs but then claimed the dangerous Haddin (31 off 58) and Moises Henriques (four off five) to have the Blues in strife at 5-95.
The rest was light work for Queensland, with NSW bowled out 60 runs short of the 202 they needed to avoid surrendering the bonus point.
The dominance of the Bulls' bowlers was in stark contrast to a wayward NSW attack that broke the record for the most wides ever recorded in a domestic one-day fixture - a whopping 26.
Fringe international Josh Hazlewood was the main culprit, giving up 16 extras in his first three overs.
He was responsible for six wide deliveries, with two of them so far off the radar they escaped Haddin and flew to the boundary.
The Bulls, who won the toss, rocketed to 0-50 as a result of NSW and Hazlewood releasing the pressure valve.
The young quick - who was in Brisbane last week with the Australian Test squad as a train-on player - was taken out of the attack after that but claimed Joe Burns (seven) with his second ball of his second spell.
In-form opener Usman Khawaja (33 off 47) had fallen moments earlier, leaving Queensland in a spot of bother at 2-71.
But strong contributions from stand-in skipper Chris Hartley (50 off 79), Peter Forrest (62 off 96) and Chris Lynn (39 off 22) allowed the hosts to put up a competitive score on a tricky, green-tinged surface.
The Bulls were only able to lift their total above 250 in the final overs, when Lynn and Nathan Hauritz (21 off 17) hit out.
Lynn went over the fence four times and to the boundary once, while Hauritz took no prisoners, smacking 17 runs off the last over - including two big sixes - before holing out to Hazlewood on the final delivery.
NSW's chief destroyer was captain Stephen O'Keefe (3-65), who removed danger pair Lynn and Hauritz, as well as Khawaja, who looked in fine touch early on.
Lynn was taken to hospital at the change of innings for scans on his genitals, having inside-edged a Doug Bollinger delivery onto himself.
