Wigan skipper Sean O’Loughlin says that getting a shot at the Tri Nations with Great Britain will partially make up for not being involved in this years play off shake up for the engage Super League Grand Final.
It wont just be a case of spending time away from home for Sean, he’ll also be leaving behind his wife and new born baby behind and stands the chance of missing out on some quality time with his family. But Sean knows this is a great opportunity to further his career in the game and a chance that is too good to miss out on.
“It is hard to leave them for such a long time but at this point in my career I couldn’t really pass up on that. I probably will miss out on some things being away for 6 or 7 weeks but I think in the long run going down on the tour will benefit me.”
Sean also believes that GB are in with a shot of doing very well in the Tri Nations and that sometimes we overlook the quality in the side.
“I think we can do well, I think we sometimes overlook the quality we have over here and concentrate too much on the Aussies.
“If you look at the side this year there’s a lot of new players as well as the senior players and I think it’s a good blend and we should do really well.”
