Peter Siddle was the first to cop it; he was convinced he had Michael Neser trapped in front on day two only to be turned down.

Mark Steketee was the next victim, with his delivery beating Matthew Short all ends up before cannoning into his pads right in front of the stumps.

It somehow wasn’t enough to convince the ump though, who inexplicably turned the plumbest LBW in history down.

Looks like they’ve thrown the whole rule out for the match.

Queensland took a run first innings lead after making 441 and rolling Victoria for 344.

The Bulls are 0/23 off four overs in their second innings.
