I don't want him to be banned, I want to see whether he will be dropped or not for his performance on Sunday.

Jinkin Jimmy, if you thought O'Loughlin played well on Sunday then I suggest its you who doesn't know what he's watching.

Who made the most handling errors for Wigan ? O'Loughlin with 3.

Only two players - Mathers and kick-mad Smith - made less average metres per carry according to the official stats. His offensive game was poor.

All players can be assessed, you know. There are no exceptions, even Andy Farrell's brother-in-law, and I don't see why he should go under the radar.

Having said all that, I concede that it was his first starting appearance since May and that he'll take time to get back into it at this level.

Again, it comes down to team selection. Did Joel Tomkins really deserve to be on the bench after the way he finished last season ? I think not.


When you hand-pick statistics to suit your arguement it makes them even less valid. For example why didn't you include try assists?

Unfortunately for you I suspect Mathers wil get banned thus taking the onus off Noble.

The incident happened in front of me and it looked a bad one in normal speed

I wonder where Mathers goes from here? Banned, totally out of form, supporters against him etc. He never should have been given another year.
