Brian McFadyen, the coach, believes he is on a good thing and is sticking to it as Tasmania named an unchanged side for the ING Cup match against Victoria at the Junction Oval on Sunday. McFadyen said the 12-man squad was in form and he was very happy with his team's performance so far this season.

"With four wins from five matches we see no reason to change the side at this stage," he said. Tasmania sit in second place on the table, six points behind Queensland, while Victoria are fourth after four games.
