Last updated at 16:52, Sunday, 23 January 2011
BARROW Raiders found a young Wigan Warriors side just too much as they went down to a narrow defeat in Brett McDermott’s testimonial.
BRETT McDERMOTT TESTIMONIAL MATCH RESULT
Barrow Raiders 24 Wigan Warriors 32
Barrow were on the back foot for much of the first half as they trailed 26-6 at the break.
It was a fine start for Barrow as Marc Dixon scored his first try in Raiders colours, but soon the visitors were on top.
Four tries in the space of 11 minutes had them well on top as guile on their part, some slack defending on Barrow’s and a poor call on a forward pass saw Jonny Walker, Josh Charnley, Matthew Russel and Jamie Acton cross to make it 20-6.
Ryan King added a further score on 36 minutes as Barrow failed to find a way of keeping them out.
Charnley added his second 10 minutes into the second half as the Warriors continued to dominate, before Barrow hit back finally as Jamie Butler scored by the posts.
This was soon followed by Jamie Thackray barging over to close the gap to 32-18, a margin that was six points fewer as Dixon grabbed his second, but one that could not be wiped out entirely.
Wigan Warriors sent their best young talent, while McDermott led a Barrow side, including trialists Lee Doran and Adam Nicholson on the bench, for their third pre-season of the year.
Gary Broadbent and Martin Ostler missed out, but Zeb Luisi made his first appearance under coach Garry Schofield after returning from New Zealand.
Wigan featured former Barrow loan player Lee Mossop, as well as Logan Tomkins – younger brother of England players Sam and Joel – and Super League player Chris Tuson.
While Shaun Wane took charge of the young Wigan side, first-team boss Michael Maguire and Kris Radlinski were in the stands to watch the potential stars of the future.
