All Pirates can do is aim for a bonus-point victory away to Barraba on Saturday and let the cards fall where they may.
So says Pirates hooker Tim Collins.
The three-time reigning premiers go into a fascinating final round of Central North rugby in fifth spot - one point behind fourth-placed Gunnedah.
They could finish the regular season in third spot, or they could miss the finals.
Collins said: "At the moment we can only control what we can do - and that's to go out there and try and win with a bonus point to give us every chance of making the top four."
"We're still positive," he added. "And we think that if we can make it in the top four, we'll definitely give it a good run."
This season has been one of the closest Central North competitions on record.
Only two things are certain: Walcha will finish on top and host the major semi-final, and Narrabri can't be knocked out of the four.
Collins said: "I can't remember it ever being this tight ... Moree can either finish second or miss the finals, depending on this week. So that's how close it is."
"I think anyone who finishes in that top four could win the competition, easily ... It's definitely gonna be a good final series," he added.
Collins said Pirates had done well this season given their injury woes, but should be higher on the ladder.
