Tamworth coach Peter Burke paid testament to the character of his side after the Magpies conjured another miracle win on Saturday.
For the second time in as many games the Magpies fought back from an early deficit and snatched victory at the death.
Joe Evans was the hero this time, latching onto an intercept and racing away 20 metres to score as the Magpies claimed the points over Barbarians 21-16 to make it four in a row.
Quipping that winning after the bell two games in a row "doesn't to much for the constitution of the coach", Burke said it is a great testament to the players that even when they aren't playing well they are able to guts out a win.
"My words to them in the dressing rooms after were when a club has a losing culture you tend to lose those sort of games, when you have a winning culture those games you win," he said.
Another sign of their development was that the old Magpies would have been ecstatic to get the result. But the 2019 version expect more of themselves.
"I think we're maturing a bit with our attitude and culture towards winning, that we want to win well," Burke said.
"Today we limped over the line."
Paying credit to Baa Baas he said they outenthused them early in the game.
"For the second game in a row we've been down 13-nil after 20 minutes and quite frankly they were all over us," he said.
But as they did against the Blues two weeks ago, they were able to work their way back into the game before half-time.
Burke said in the second half they started cleaning out a lot better.
"And we sorted out our lineout and started to get more ball," he said.
Baa Baas losing one of their props to the sin-bin also assisted with that.
"It enabled us to get better ball," Burke said.
Up to that point Baa Baas had been all over them there.
"Our platform was stronger and we manged to get a lot of field position late in the game," he said.
He felt the longer the half went on the more chance they were of getting home, although Baa Baas made it difficult for them.
They didn't make it easy for themselves either.
"We had two or three opportunities late in the game to do something with it but we blew them through making mistakes," he said.
In the end it came down to their pressure forcing a mistake from Baa Baas.
Burke was particularly impressed by Rob Creighton's performance.
The second rower, who is just shy of 40, really took the Baa Baas on physically and, he noted, "won that personal battle".
Winger Clint Coles picked up the two points and breakaway Jack Barker the one.
The Magpies have the bye in first grade this coming weekend but have a lot of hard work to do before they face Robb College.
"If we put that performance on the park Robb will have a 30 point win," Burke said.
