"We're desperately keen to get the first win on the board of the season over in Perth," he said.

"We know the WACAs are a fantastic side. They'll come hard after a bad loss to New South Wales and 'JL' (WA coach Justin Langer) will have them up and about.

"We've got a real contest on our hands going over there, but we're really confident."

An unchanged 12 will travel to Perth for the match starting on Monday.
