Young is placing an emphasis on lifting its aggression ahead of Saturday's second round clash against Boorowa Goldies.

The Yabbies are aiming to respond after losing to Boorowa in the opening rounds of the season.

They have momentum after defeating Grenfell the week before last week's bye and are determined to build into the second round.

Committee member Nick Duff said a few players are unavailable this week, and says coach Ned Mullany wants players to lift.

"The team will need to lift. It will be won in the forwards - hard running and hard hits will get us over the line," he said.

Lock-forward Dan Cormie and No.8 Dan Dowson are hoped to have big games, while Tom Dudek and Can Rosser are set to make an impact from the bench.

Young Yabbies:

  • 1 Hagon Williams, 2 Williams Munday, 3 Jesh Smith, 4 Rowan Daley, 5 Dan Cormie, 6 Kevin McLaughlin, 7 Dan Parker, 8 Dan Dowson, 9 Ned Mullany (c), 10 Brendan Shoard, 11 Beau O'Connor, 12 Jesse Pittman, 13 Nick Schiller, 15 Owen Griffiths.
