Pirates coach Mat Kelly will be looking for his in-form outfit to take their play to another level when they host Barraba on Saturday.
The three-time reigning premiers have rebounded from a poor start to the season by winning their past three matches, but Kelly says they are still very much the unfinished product.
Aiding the side's quest to find peak form, he said, was the near full-strength nature of the side.
"We're still nowhere near where we want to be," he said. "But we're working hard at training.
"We want to see if we can build on what was probably decent performances against Narrabri and Inverell ... we'll see how we go against Barraba, who are always very tough."
Pirates beat Narrabri 48-22 at home two starts back, then travelled to Inverell and won 24-10.
Sixth-placed Barraba have won two matches, and are coming off a 55-7 away loss to Gunnedah.
Kelly said Pirates needed to improve their game management.
