Injured Sharks five eighth Trent Barrett has claimed that the Brisbane Broncos were lucky to win against a desperate North Queensland Cowboys outfit on Friday night at Dairy Farmers Stadium. <br><br>In a fiery affair that ended the Cowboys finals hopes, Brisbane escaped with the vital two competition points, continuing their late season purple patch.<br>“I thought they [Brisbane] were a bit lucky. I didn’t think two of their tries in the first half were tries.” Barrett admitted to Bigpond Sports Weekend<br><br>“I thought it [Brisbane’s first try] was a forward pass… and the second one I thought he dropped it.” <br>The controversy began when soon-to-be AFL export Karmichael Hunt appeared to pass the ball forward to a flying Israel Falou in the sixteenth minute. Brisbane then reeled in a half time deficit with a dubious grounding by interchange Bronco Alex Glenn shortly after the break.<br><br>“They got a little bit of luck.”<br>State of Origin five eighth Barrett once again failed to rule out a final round come-back against South Sydney to prevent the injury ravaged Sharks winning the wooden spoon. <br><br>“I can’t play this week but I’m a chance to play against Souths, so ill wait and see<br><br>“I don’t want the wooden spoon.”<br><br><a href="">CLICK HERE</a> to view the entire BSW interview
