It may have not been the tidiest of games of rugby league, but neither St Pat's coach Luke Branighan or any of his teammates will mind too much how Saturday's win came about.
The blue and whites claimed their first Group 10 premier league win in five matches, claiming a solid 30-10 victory over the winless Blayney Bears at Jack Arrow Sporting Complex
The five tries to two win was St Pat's first win since round two, when they managed a narrow two point victory over Lithgow Workies.
Branighan said all that matters is that his team got the win.
"I didn't care how we won, we just had to get that W next to our name," he said.
"It wasn't the greatest game of footy by both sides, but we've got that win and we'll have some troops coming back into the squad for the next couple of matches."
Winger Adam Booth bagged 14 points, courtesy of one try and five goals.
Branighan also praised the efforts of Mitch Squire, who played the day in hooker.
"We moved him to hooker on Saturday and he was very sharp out of dummy half," he said.
With no Group 10 matches next weekend, Branighan said the draw has timed nicely for injured players, who now have an extra week to recover.
"It's worked out well. It gives myself an extra week and Zac Merritt an extra week and quite a few others that have injuries or carrying them," he said.
"Saturday was all about getting the win and welcoming some people into our squad that can make a difference."
Branighan believes his side has the ability to go on a winning run, to put St Pat's in the mix for a top five spot, but did admit the competition is extremely competitive.
"We can [put a run on] but we need to be playing a lot better than what we are at the moment," he said.
"Getting players back in drips and drabs isn't going to automatically fix the problem, but it does help a lot.
"We do have the ability to put a few games together, but it's a very good competition at the moment.
"Our next game is Lithgow in Lithgow, which will be super tough. They're a much stronger side than they were at the start of the year."
The win keeps St Pat's in eighth spot, although they will likely remain in second last place, unless Orange CYMS are beaten by a massive scoreline to city rivals Hawks.
Round 10 was moved to accommodate the Group 10 versus Group 11 representative fixtures.
