Tasmania are battling to set Queensland a competitive target on Tuesday's third day of their Sheffield Shield day-night match in Brisbane.
Trailing by 76 on the first innings, the Tigers were 7-179 at stumps at the Gabba, holding a lead of 103 runs.
The Tigers lost 3-18 after a promising 62-run opening stand between Jordan Silk (33) and Ben Dunk (31).
The vital wicket of captain and Australian player George Bailey (5) rounded off a fruitful second session for the Bulls. Bailey's dismissal was Queensland wicketkeeper Chris Hartley's 500th Sheffield Shield catch - breaking the previous record of Darren Berry.
Quick single: Hartley breaks record with catch No.500
After the break, Beau Webster couldn't replicate his first-innings heroics, dismissed for 23, before Jake Doran (24) and Ben McDermott (16) followed suit.
Their hopes of building a competitive total lie with Tom Triffitt, who will resume on 39 on Wednesday.
Earlier, Queensland's last three wickets added 33 after they resumed at 7-343 on day three.
Quick single: Bushrangers close in on outright win
Captain and wicketkeeper Chris Hartley fleshed out the tail with an unbeaten 70 off 148 balls.
Andrew Fekete and Beau Webster each took three wickets.
