A fighting half-century from South Australia's Alex Carey has helped deny Queensland victory in their Sheffield Shield match.
SA, set 324 runs to win, finished at 6-244 with Carey (66no) holding sway to ensure a draw at Adelaide Oval.
Redbacks opener Jake Carder top-scored with 79 as the Bulls fell short a comeback win.
Queensland were bowled out for 152 in their first innings, with SA replying with 280.
But Usman Khawaja's superb 174 and Jimmy Peirson's 132 - his second ton in two Shield games this season - allowed the visitors to declare at 7-451 in their second dig.
Queensland set SA a target of 324 runs from a minimum of 86 overs.
But despite more heroics from paceman Mark Steketee, the Bulls were unable to secure a win.
Steketee claimed seven wickets in SA's first innings and raised victory hopes by taking three of the initial four Redbacks wickets to fall on Monday.
The fast bowler finished with 3-48 from 24 overs, returning 10-92 for the game - his maiden 10-wicket haul in a first-class match.
The Bulls' victory push suffered two setbacks within eight deliveries when they dropped key batsmen Travis Head and Carey in an eight-ball span.
Head, on 21, edged an attempted cut shot to wicketkeeper Peirson who turfed the chance from spinner Matt Kuhnemann.
And in the next over, Carey, on nine, drove a Steketee delivery to Bryce Street at cover who dropped the catching opportunity - both reprieves came with the Redbacks 3-148.
The in-form Head added only two more runs before popping a catch to midwicket to give Steketee his third wicket and leave SA wobbling at 4-161.
But Carey remained resolute as both the Redbacks and Bulls played out their second draw from two Shield games this season.
