Young Yabbies coach Ned Mullany was a relieved man after Saturday's round four Oilsplus South West competition victory over Condobolin.
Mullany described the result as "a long time coming" after two defeats and draw to begin their 2019 campaign and return to the Central West competition.
Young was too good for the Rams winning 31-14 at Cranfield Oval, Mullany identifying the side's defence as hugely impressive.
"It's good to get that win. It's been a long time coming," coach Ned Mullany said.
"I thought our tackling and line speed in defence was really good. Both Condo's tries came from loose plays.
"It was a solid game from everyone."
Mullany noted that the Yabbies became distracted by Condobolin's unstructured play, and says it's something the side can work on ahead of this week's game against Harden.
"Previous weeks we haven't been poor, things just haven't really gone our way. It's good to get that victory," Mullany said.
Debutante Owen Griffiths was one of the standouts in the victory, and Mullany said it's likely he'll cement his position at fullback or wing in the coming weeks.
