Tumut have lost some firepower in what is expected to be a tough slog in the mud between two top three teams
The Blues will be without Country representative Ron Leapai for their clash with Young at Twickenham on Saturday.
Leapai won't make the trip from Canberra with his partner due to have a baby.
"She's due at any time now so he's sticking close to home," co-coach Lachlan Bristow said.
However Bristow has backed the club's forward depth to rise to the task to cover the loss of the Weissel Medal leader.
Adam Pearce is set to move on Leapai's right edge after moving into the middle this season.
However the Blues, who haven't trained since their win over Gundagai a fortnight ago, are yet to determine who comes into lock.
"Adam has played a fair bit of back row so we won't lose anything with him there and we've got some great middle forwards to rotate," Bristow said.
"We will handle it."
The Blues have used Jed Pearce off the bench since his return from injury a month ago and he and Lewis Arragon are the two options to fill the void in the starting line up.
Tumut come into the clash on a nine-game winning streak, which started when they took a 30-18 win when the two teams met at Alfred Oval in May.
Young are looking to hit back after their 20-6 loss to Southcity last week while the Blues come into the clash very fresh.
"We had last week off and weren't able to train on Tuesday so we'll meet up for the first time (on Friday night) since our last game," Bristow said.
"It was way too wet and it was bucketing down so there was no real point and the extra night off won't hurt.
"We usually have the (bye week) Tuesday off and meet on Friday but we thought it would be good a treat to have the whole week off and just get away from it for a little bit."
Tumut proved far too good for Kangaroos at a muddy Twickenham earlier this month.
Conditions aren't expected to be any better and Bristow hopes the team can take advantage.
"It's going to be a pretty slow track so everything is going to be in the middle," he said. "I think we're looking forward to that with our quality forwards so any game that will be played in the middle is awesome.
"But at the same time if they want to chance their arm and go out wide we've got some quality there too.
"I don't think the conditions will really allow for that kind of football so we're happy to meet them in the middle."
