The build-up to Sunday’s first grade grand final was dominated by the excitement around Nyngan as the Tigers prepared for their maiden Group 11 decider.

But that’s not the way Tim Ryan saw it.

The Tigers faithful had the chance to be a part of grand final week for the first time and while it was seven straight deciders for CYMS, that didn’t make the 34-18 victory at Caltex Park any less sweet.

“It was all about Nyngan never having won one so my theme for this week was, what where they celebrating about? We’ve won 14 now and that’s something to be proud of,” he said.

“All week I drummed into the boys every year we’ve won the competition and made it about how we wanted to join them in the history books and we did that.”

 While the final margin was 16 points, the match in front of a massive 5125 fans was far closer.

The crowd was electric all day, with the $39,300 in gate takings the biggest in Group 11.
