The Macquarie Coast Stingers have genuine gamebreakers with no fear of failure while captain Josh Hyde has the experience.
But don't for a second think the skipper is going to try and curb the enthusiasm of his side when they start their Plan B Regional Bash campaign in Ballina this weekend.
Hyde hopes those ingredients can be the key for a youthful Stingers side whose average age is just 22.
"It's going to be a big learning curve, but with that youthfulness comes fearless cricket because that's the way they play and as captain I'm expecting the unexpected from a lot of the boys," Hyde said.
"They're a different kettle of fish. You've got Bryce Cook, Jarrod Prosper, the Korn boys and Cooper Petterson who are going to take the game on and give you 100 percent in every area.
"That's what you want."

While Hyde can call on his experience from previous clashes against players from Northern Rivers, Northern Inland and Coffs Coast, he will be happy to change those on the run if that's what was required.
"Most of the boys won't know what to expect from the other teams so if Bryce and Cooper want to bowl fast and at the stumps I'm not going to tell them not to," he said.
"Every year you learn something different and working with the young blokes is opening up my eyes to how you can captain T20 cricket.
"I don't consider myself a good T20 cricketer, but I do see myself as a genuine leader. If you're not trying to better yourself, I don't think you can keep playing cricket."
The Stingers have traditionally struggled in the annual 20-over competition mainly because of a defensive mindset and Hyde said that needed to change.
They're going out there to take the game on from the first ball.

"Our goal is to score 50-70 in the powerplay to get off to that quick start because you can't be defensive in T20 cricket and with the ball, you've got to take wickets," he said.
"We've got a lot of match-winners and blokes who can score quick runs. You only need one or two to get away and anything can happen."
Hyde captained the Stingers in their first year before injuries prevented him from being a regular in the side in recent campaigns.
After giving rugby league and rugby union away he is in the best form for many seasons as highlighted by his innings for the Rays in the Mid North Coast T20 league semi-final.
On that occasion he steered his side to victory with an unbeaten half century as they chased down 203 with a ball to spare.
"With that franchise concept being played it gives us the best chance of performing at (Regional Bash) level with players who are ready to go," he said.
"Previously no player has ever felt like they're ready to go because it's always been in October, but having that delay into December means we've had a good month of cricket under our belt."
"Whatever we can achieve this year will build the success for the boys in the next few years. I think it's a two to three-year plan."
