Guy Edmonds, Josh Dean, Trent D'Antonio, Ryo Nishimura, Jacob Younis, Tucker Neuhaus, Malik Collymore, Michael Campbell, Stone Garrett, Josh Strong, Harrison Fullerton.

Whilst the Blue Sox record on the road has been below average, Sydney manager Jason Pospishil knows now is the time to turn things around.

"We always look forward to travelling to Perth. It's a great place to play and a great city. The boys had a great workout last night and we tidied a few things up so with the same effort as we showed against Melbourne and a little better execution," Pospishil said.

The addition of jovial pitching coach, and former Major Leaguer, Jim Colborn, will provide good impetus for the side, according to Pospishil.

"We are confident that we can come away with a series win. We also will be reunited with Jim Colborn this weekend so I am sure the Pitching Staff are looking forward to that."

Pospishil and the Blue Sox commence their series against the Perth Heat on Thursday night.
