Former St George-Illawarra icon Trent Barrett labeled Wigan’s 31-30 come from behind victory over Bradford on Friday as the best win of his career.

Barrett – who unlike his former NRL teammates made a finals series this season albeit in the English Super League – played a crucial hand in the elimination playoff.

A dreamy 30-6 start from Bradford had the experts writing ‘game over’ on the wall before winger Mark Calderwood ran in 3 tries to level the scores.

Pat Richards then finished off the Bulls season with a drop goal.

Barrett – who set up Calderwood’s second try of the night with a long pass – told Sky Sports "That's the best win I've ever had, I think.”
“To come from behind like we did in a big game at Bradford, it was a great effort.
"They showed a lot of effort tonight and in the last five weeks, I'm proud of them.”
Wigan – who finished in 6th spot at the end of round 27 - will meet Hull FC next weekend after Peter Sharp's side beat Huddersfield 22-16 at KC Stadium on Saturday.
