Barrett misses out on Man of Steel
Former St George Illawarra star Trent Barrett has missed out on the English Super League's player of the year award.
But he was surprisingly overlooked for 21-year-old St Helens hooker James Roby at the awards ceremony in Manchester. Barrett's outstanding season did not go completely unrewarded however, as he was named the players' player of the year.
Barrett, who won the Dally M Medal in 2000, inspired Wigan to a remarkable resurgence this season which almost took the Warriors to the grand final from a sixth-placed finish in the regular season.
