A wounded CYMS will head down the highway to take on St Pat's on Wednesday night without several key names, but coach Cam Cole said he's expecting his boys to have "a bit more energy" than during the side's first loss of the year on Saturday.
The green and golds lost five-eighths Jack Cole as well as Jesse Buchan and Nic Gollan in the side's first loss of the year in what Cole called "a bit of a war".
He backed his squad's depth, however, with hooker Liam Wilson one to step in the void.
"He plays at hooker but he's one of those guys who can play in a lot of spots," Cole said.
He said his side was keen to go into the bye with four wins under the belt, but would be happy with three wins and a loss should CYMS overcome St Pat's.
"We wanted to go into the break four and zip but losing on the weekend has obviously buggered that up a bit," Cole said.
"I'm backing them in."
