Major twist in NRL club’s reported interest in Hull KR star

Recently it emerged that Canterbury Bulldogs have an interest in signing Hull KR star Tyrone May.

This is because the club are interested in bringing together all three of the May brothers including Terrell and Taylan.

The Bulldogs have a clear interest in Sydney Roosters star Terrell May and have also expressed interest in Taylan May.

On top of this, it was reported by the Daily Telegraph that the Bulldogs are interested in Tyrone May. This is despite the fact he is contracted to the Robins until 2025.

Furthermore, more cold water has been poured over this potential move. This comes as reports emerge suggesting that the Bulldogs would not be able to fit all three under the salary cap. This has led the club to put plans in place to try and find a way to sign all three players but they could struggle.

Hull KR certainly have command over the situation at least until next year and May will almost certainly play out two years at Craven Park but after that a move to the NRL could be tempting.

Recently, Terrell has now taken to the ‘Bloke In A Bar’ podcast to express his and his sibling’s desire to all play together, just as the Burgess brothers did at the Rabbitohs.

In spite of Super League man Tyrone’s contract being a two year deal, meaning he comes off contract ahead of the 2026 season, his brother has stated that all three siblings are off contract ahead of 2025 and could therefore unite at one team, as is his dream.

May explained: “My talks are with whoever wants to sign three of us brothers, that’s where I’m going to be at.

“Robbo (Roosters head coach Trent Robinson) knows that too, I haven’t hid that from him. Whichever club wants three brothers, that’s the club I’ll be at. We’re all off (contract) at the same time.”

He also confirmed that clubs have showed interest but admitted it would be hard for a club to swoop for all three, however it would remain his preference.

“That’s the preference, if a club can get all three of us then I’ll sign there in a heartbeat no matter what. I think everyone would if you had brothers and you could.

“If that doesn’t work out then my preference is to be at Roosters for the rest of my life or back home in Penrith.”

It would appear though that Terrell has a clear intention to remain down under, citing how important family is to him, which could suggest that Tyrone’s stay in Super League could end after his spell with Hull KR.

Terrell continued: “My family’s everything. Obviously, I could’ve went Melbourne, everyone knows that, it came out in the media.

“I was going to go there, but I can’t leave my family. Especially now, I just bought a house. I want to be with my family, I want my parents to retire and stuff so I want to look after them.

“Obviously the preference is for us to be together but if that can’t happen then I just want to be with at least one of them.”
