If he is to prolong his career then this is the right move and let’s be fair here,his form didn’t warrant a call up did it?

Must be end of his career now or has he had to many bangs to the head.Fans on this site are always saying that the club have a duty of care but the player most have a duty of care to his family also

That reads like the end of his international career by the wording.
RL's biggest issue is the constant negativity of its own fans.

support verb [ (ENCOURAGE)

"to agree with and give encouragement to someone or something because you want him, her, or it to succeed"

The Wigan and England captain had targeted a return to Great Britain colours on the first Rugby League Lions tour since 2006 as the perfect way to round off his international career,
It is sad but that is how I saw this season for him. Just a case of him doing enough and he thought he would have been selected. Big ego trip!
But after missing much of the 2019 Betfred Super League season with a pectoral injury, it has been agreed that O’Loughlin’s interests would be better served by spending a full off-season at home.
Or in other words. You haven't done enough to warrant selection and the team cannot carry a 20 minute player like Wigan attempt to do
Great Britain and England head coach Wayne Bennett said: “I’ve admired Sean O’Loughlin as a player for a long time, and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with him with England.

“He’s been an outstanding leader of the team on and off the field
I have highlighted what I think is the one key word in the entire article as stated by Wayne Bennett. He has been - not is an outstanding leader any more

Reads like an obituary to his international career even if the player doesn't see it like that
I'm a better fan than you
Because I don't "Boo"!!!

Yes I bloody know transfer fees do not count on the salary cap for those illiterates that need it explaining to them because they assume everyone is as thick as they are :roll:

Sounds to me like he will be holding the team back again next season, The comment about a full off season really worries me

Awesome news, NOT :evil:
Bloody hell! When I looked on the Index Board and saw "last post by Medlocke" I thought it was a RIP and perhaps Josie couldn't blow the Bugle.

It’s time messrs Radlinski & Leneghan did the same thing at Wigan and make the decision for him.
“Shaun you’ve had a fantastic playing career, but now it’s time to move into the coaching role that we’ve promised you”

Personally i think he should hang up his boot and as for coaching - he should have to prove he is worth that role to the club. I get he has been a great servant but does anyone know if he is actually any good at coaching?
Always be yourself - unless you can be Dan Bilzerian then ALWAYS be Dan Bilzerian!
