This was really a training session against a spirited Barrow side. Yes the visitors were weakened but they still called upon 8 players who were part of their side that gave Wigan a good run for their money up at Barrow in the same round of this competition two years ago.

In truth it was all Wigan. Barrow never got past half way all game unless they had been gifted territory by a Wigan error. In fairness they did get some gifted territory Barrow and deserved at least one score for their efforts but Wigan were never ever in danger of being threatened in this tie.

Wigan dominated from the off, but it took 11 minutes before Barrow's reasonably strong defence finally broke. Thomas Leuluai broke through to claim it with a conversion from Pat Richards making it 6-0.

That initial try broke the backs of Barrow for a short while with two more tries coming in the next few minutes. First Brett Finch sent Andy Coley clear under the sticks from ten metres out then from a scrum we went out wide on the right, Josh Charnley was heading into touch but threw a blind pass behind him which fell straight into the hands of George Carmont. Not sure what George was doing out on the right but he claimed the score and with Pat converting both it was 18-0.

It then look like Barrow had hit back when Wigan had fumbled the kick off. Nathan Mossop had sent Mike Backhouse over in the right corner, but although the referee and touch judge on that side of the field were all for giving the trip, the touch judge on the far side stood his ground for a forward pass. From my viewpoint it was a correct decision and I suppose you have to credit the touch judge for getting involved and also 21 year old referee Tim Roby for using him.

It was now well into the second quarter of the match and it was now raining heavily. The clouds had been ominous from kick off and it stifled the game for a while. Wouldn't use it as an excuse for Wigan but it was a sloppy next ten minutes.

That was until the fourth try came on 33 minutes. Again from close range, Paul Deacon spun out of tackles from 10 metres out to score just to the right of the posts. Pat converted to make it 24-0 and that's how it remained until half time.

By the start of the second half the dark clouds and heavy rain had been disappeared to be replaced by bright sunshine and with that Wigan scored some good tries second half.

Barrow would have been looking to get the first try of the second half but Sam Tomkins had other ideas with a solo effort just two minutes in. He went on an arching run from 30 metres out and beat a couple of defenders before scoring near the sticks. Pat converted for 30-0.

The visitors could have hit back next but Liam Campbell was denied in the right corner by another forward pass. Soon up the other end Wigan got their sixth try. Close to the line, it was a simple effort for Sean O'Loughlin who just hit enough gas to outpace the defenders. Pat again converted for 36-0.

Soon after that, Jeff Lima was amazingly sin binned on 52 minutes. Barrow had survived a Wigan attack and were looking for a quick restart but Lima was found to be guilty of delaying the restart. I think he just got in the way more than anything but the yellow card was a bit harsh considering you don't really need to be wasting time with a 36-0 lead already in the bag.

The yellow card didn't really halt Wigan's momentum. Leuluai claimed his second after Sam Tomkins sent him coasting under the sticks on 56 minutes. Pat's seventh conversion making it 42-0.

One thing Barrow never did was collapse in a heap. They always kept trying and that perhaps stopped the scoreboard becoming a full on embarrassment. But Wigan did claim two more tries before the full time hooter.

First was a typical Richards effort. Deacon put the bomb in the air and Pat just out leaped the defender to touch down. His conversion wasn't given, even though many thought it was over. Then on 73 minutes Sam claimed his second with a classy effort. He dropped the shoulder from about half way and just had too much pace for any defenders to stop him. Pat converted that one to leave the final score at 52-0.

In the last 5 minutes, Barrow desperately tried to avoid the nil and although ex Wigan academy youngster Andy Ballard twice made half breaks down the left, he was bundled into touch on both occasions. Wigan then into the next round with ease and the draw see's us making a trip to Bradford on Sunday 22nd May. Still fancy us there but surely it'll be a much tougher contest than we had today.
