They may be out of the running in terms of the Oilsplus Cup South-West Division title but the Young Yabbies are looking to finish their season on a high this weekend.
Results didn't fall the Yabbies' way last week and as such Saturday's final regular-season round clash against Temora will bring their first season back in Central West Rugby Union to an end.
With that in mind there's no lack of motivation, Young skipper Ned Mullany said.
"They beat us early in the season so we want to get one back on them. We want to say we've only lost both games to Cootamundra and Harden this season and we want to end on a high," Mullany said.
The Yabbies revived old rivalries in returning to the Central West competition this season, after a number of years playing in ACT Rugby's first division.

Young president Cec Finley said while somewhat disappointing the Yabbies haven't been able to win a finals berth, the decision to move back was "undoubtedly right".
"It's a little disappointing, we would have expected to finish in the top four at the beginning of the season. But in terms of re-engaging with sponsors and supporters it's a huge success," he enthused.
"The move back to the local competition was undoubtedly the right move. It's been great."
"We couldn't be happier. We probably went in a bit green and thought things were going to be a bit easier than what they were, it's a learning curve for next year," Mullany said.
"But I think it's been great. A lot of the Old Boys want to watch Young play Harden or Young play Cootamundra, not Young play (Tuggernong) Vikings. Everyone at the club would say it's been a success."
