This could be the explanation but the red side was definitely facing McIlorum, hence why everyone in the South saw that it was red. If he was holding the yellow card behind the red one then it might explain why everyone who was behind the direction the ref was holding it (ie past the 30m line in the east) thought it was yellow.
I was in the south, the ref only showed one card, a red one.
i was near the wheelchair ramp, in the east, among the bulls fans....it was yellow from my angle
St George-Illawara Captain Ben Creagh enthused: “It was great. We have some big crowds back home but probably not as loud so it was awesome. I’ve been over here once before, in 2011 at Wigan, but tonight was even better at Warrington.”

After seeing the incident for the first time I'm pretty sure he'll be ok for the semi but will need to take the early guilty plea just to be on the safe side.
He was stupid though. He gave Elima exactly what he was looking for and you could tell by Elima's reaction that he was just looking to milk any sort of punch to get him sent off. I'd like to think Elima would be looking at some sort of action for throwing a few elbow's in McIlorums direction but it's highly doubtful.
Its on super league TV video after the game, shows the incident. Just looks like he lost his cool. Yeah Elima was being a bit of a tool but you can't go thumping people for nout
"Games as big as a grand finals define individuals and clubs. Remember we are only renting these shirts, I had my time in Pat Richards shirt. Ellery and Faz had there time in Sean's, Hampo and Radders in Sam's. You have to make a mark in these shirts that's still there the day you hand it over to someone else. So be aware for 80 minutes you are not only playing but also writing history and creating a legacy. How many people get to actually write history, not many. A big stage demands big players, be inspired. You play for Wigan, now go do it. Good luck." - Martin Offiah, 2010.
