They haven't been too far off the money in either match and coach Greg Wynn is optimistic.
"I thought in round one, the first 25 minutes I thought we were playing the better footy of the two teams," he said.
"Then we let in a try right on half-time which put them just in front but I thought for most of that first-half we were in a strong position in that game.
"After the kick off, we dropped the kick off and defended for 20 minutes straight and our fitness wasn't there to go with them.
"Even though the result wasn't good there were plenty of positives to take out of that game.
"While we respect them and they are a good team, we don't think we were completely outplayed."
Tamworth are unbeaten so far this season and sit second on the table heading into the match.
Wynn said their position was deserved.
"They were coming good at the end of the season last year and they have kept that going at the start of the season this year which is good to see," he said.
The Baa Baas have the luxury of having a consistent squad to choose from and Wynn is hoping that will work in their favour.
"We are going into this weekend unchanged from last weekend," he said.
"While we were disappointed in the result and how we played against Albies, we are still happy with team we have and there is room for improvement.
"We are pretty much going in unchnged which is nice to keep working on some continuity there."
The Barbarians will host Tamworth in all grades at Alcatraz.
