Penrith Panthers has today terminated the NRL playing contract of Tyrone May with immediate effect.
The Panthers Board of Directors concluded May’s conduct following the 2021 NRL Grand Final constituted a serious breach of his contractual obligations.
The Board also gave consideration to previous breaches in making the decision to terminate his contract at this time.
"As a club we understand our responsibilities to the game, our corporate partners, our members and fans, and the wider Rugby League community," Panthers CEO Brian Fletcher said.
"The Board observed due process in this matter and considered all relevant factors before reaching its final decision.
"Panthers will coordinate with the NRL to ensure Tyrone receives access to any support services he needs moving forward."
