A second Barrett inspired try gave the Dragons a 12-0 lead at halftime after he put in a chip kick for fullback Ben Hornby who planted it over the line.Whatever Souths' coach Shaun McRae said at halftime must of worked, as it was a different South Sydney who came onto the field for the second half.
