Baz Reflects On Leeds Game

It was an emotional night for Trent Barrett against Leeds last Friday as he played what could be his final game at the JJB Stadium. Wigan, of course, could yet get a home game in the play-offs ,but that is dependent on results on the final weekend of the regular season.

We spoke to Baz after the game to get his thoughts on the game and the night,

"I was hoping for a better outcome than that but we ran into a pretty hot side in Leeds, we need to get better than that, especially defensively, they are a good side but we let ourselves down in a few areas.

"We let in a couple of tries before half time and one straight after, it was more a concentration thing. We now have a week off which we need, we have a few wounded blokes. We then have Saints at Saints, it doesn't get any easier. It is a big challenge for us now to regroup and get things right and get our injuries right."

On what could have been his final game at the JJB, Trent added,

"It was one I won't forget, probably for the wrong reasons. It has been a terrific experience for me the last two years which I have thoroughly enjoyed it. The fans have been terrific and the players have been great. I have a lot to thank them for and I have some good memories.

"We have had some good wins during my time here against some quality sides and probably the win against St Helens to make the Play-Offs last year was great as was our run in the Play-Offs and our run in the cup as well.

"It was a big experience for me and my family at the end, it was thrill for my kids to get on the park at the end. Hopefully we can give the fans something to finish the season on better than tonight. We have a week off an who knows what will happen, it's just a matter of who we play, anything can happen."

On the atmosphere at home, Barrett said,

"It is a great ground, the crowd are close and surface is one of the best in the world. It is a very vocal crowd and I will miss that."
