Four rounds remain in the New England Rugby Union competition and St Albert's College have one hand grasped on the minor premiership.
The students bounced back after their loss to Tamworth with a 29-7 victory over the second-placed Armidale Blues.
Their return to form puts them in good stead for a match-up against college rivals Robb College this Saturday.
Robb also came up with a plucky 34-22 win against the Barbarians in their last start.
Robb coach David McCathie said they hit their straps in the second-half against a much bigger Baa Baas and they will be looking to continue their form this Saturday.
"A very good win against Baa Baas on Saturday given we probably didn't play our best football in the first-half with the advantage of a pretty strong wind," he said.
"But we fixed things up in the second-half, we played a lot smarter, a lot more disciplined, held on to the ball and played some really good footy.
"It was very, very pleasing to see."
One of the things which has impressed McCathie the most, is his side's ability to play to their strengths.
While they gave away a fair bit of weight to their Barbarians opponents, they made up for it elsewhere.
"That's just part of the deal, it is just who we are and what we have got, we work around it," he said.
But now their focus is firmly on the college clash with Albies.
The last time the sides met, Robb delivered Albies their first defeat of the season.
McCathie said they need to do it again.
"Huge game against Albies," he said.
"We need to win, we only have two games left before the semis and it is pretty tight for third and fourth place.
"We want to be masters of our own destiny, we want take care of business ourselves so we will be looking for a win.
"We are very much looking forward to the college clash on Saturday, it should be great."
