Sean O’Loughlin handed just one game ban

Sean O’Loughlin has been handed a one-game suspension and a £300 fine after his red-card against Wakefield.

The Warriors and England captain was found guilty of the Grade C offence, which normally entails a two or three game ban.

However, the RFL claim that O’Loughlin has been handed a smaller suspension because of his previous record.

A tweet released by the official RFL account said: “The independent tribunal took into consideration O’Loughlin’s first half dismissal, guilty plea and his first caution in 15-year career.”

The news has annoyed fans across the game, who believe O’Loughlin should have been given a more severe punishment after a nasty-looking tackle on Wakefield’s Chris Annakin.
