Trent Barrett (born 18 November 1977) is an Australian professional rugby league football coach and former player. He is the head coach of the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles of the National Rugby League (NRL). A former Australian international and New South Wales State of Origin representative five-eighth, he played during the 1990s and 2000s for the Illawarra Steelers before they merged to form the St George Illawarra Dragons, with whom he won the 2000 Dally M Medal. Barrett also had a two-season spell in Super League with England's Wigan Warriors and was named in 2007's Super League Dream Team before finishing his career back in Australia with the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks. After co-coaching the St George Illawarra under 20's side and coaching the Country New South Wales rugby league team for four seasons Barrett started coaching in the NRL with the Sea Eagles until he chucked a tantrum about supplying his patio furniture to the club and used it as an excuse for his poor coaching record.
