Gameday squad: Team named to head across the ditch


With a short turnaround to Saturday’s clash with Wellington, Alen Stajcic has made no major changes for the Mariners’ trip to take on the Phoenix.

Staj has bolstered the defensive stocks in the extended 20-man group, with Ruon Tongyik added and Kye Rowles also included after he was left out of the New Year’s Eve loss to Perth Glory as a precaution.
