Absolutely ridiculous. If you get a ban for this they might as well play touch rugby

I thought exactly the same! Set of tossers on the match review panel!
Talk about going off previous offences! 🤬
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

I despair of the way that RL is being administered. No fewer than 5 Wigan players were reported (by whom?) in a match where there was no serious or even non-serious foul play to get upset about. I can't even remember Flower's 55th minute transgression, let alone work out why it's worth a 2 match ban.
The only serious incident in the whole weekend was the alleged biting in the Warrington match and that seems to have been swept under the carpet (Footage inconclusive - further investigation - don't hold your breath - nothing to see here - move along please)
I'm trying not to get paranoid and think that there's an agenda against Wigan but well..........................

Can’t help but think that Ben’s previous behaviour have been brought back into light.
What makes it worse is that Makinson got a reduced ban for being a ‘good boy’.

Description of Flowers tackle in minutes of Review Meeting is exactly same as James Bentley of Saints. Both Grade B offences. Flower gets two game ban, Bentley 0. For Castleford, Sao's tackle report sounds like a crusher, 1 game ban. Yes, it's easy to get paranoid!! Oh and not heard Darryl Powell whingeing!!

Apologies, Bentley was same description of tackle as Flower but Grade A rather than Flower's Grade B, so not sure how that works! Sao was Grade B but only 1 match ban. Consistency ........

I can't remember this. Was it put on report or just picked up after?

I would think there's a likelihood the club will appeal the severity of the sentence, surely this is one they should say, needs to be looked at again.
