England romped to a 32-7 lead not long into the second half as Mike Tindall shrugged off some less than wholehearted tackling to score his side's fourth try.
However, whereas the Barbarians replacements seemed to galvanise the side and spark a spirited comeback, England seemed to lose their way once they started to make changes.
England did hang on for the win but there would have been a grudging acceptance that a couple of the scores were the result of poor defence from the invitation side and that tougher tests await Down Under.
Attwood, making his first England start, drew praise from Martin Johnson after the game and certainly caught the eye with some good work in the set piece and also showed up well in the loose.
Similarly, Doran-Jones went well up front and didn't do his long term prospects any harm at all.
Meanwhile, Tindall, a wise head in the backline, looked in great nick and his try was well taken after a smart hand off on Casey Laulala.
Most importantly, however, all three came through the game and were on the plane for Australia on Monday morning.
