New Super League signing could make shock return to NRL

New Super League signing Tyrone May is reportedly being lined up for a shock NRL return.

The former Penrith Panthers utility man was given his marching orders at the end of the 2021 NRL season following a controversial social media post where he referenced his sex-tape scandal trial.

May has completed his 300 hours of a community service order which has paved the way for the Penrith Panthers misfit to join Super League side Catalans Dragons.

But, revered Australian journalist The Mole has revealed that he could link back up with the Panthers after just a year in the south of France.

“He had to go after a series of breaches but there is a feeling that he will have served his punishment with a year away from his mates,” the source told Wide World of Sports.

“Tyrone has made some mistakes but he is still young and he will have learned from this.

“He is an extremely popular member of the group and the boys want him back.”

Upon signing, May said: “First of all, I’m very grateful for this opportunity. I can’t thank the coach Steve McNamara, Alex Chan and the president Bernard Guasch enough for allowing me to come to such a great club with an amazing fan base.

“I’m eager to meet my new teammates and gain their respect by working hard to go one better this year.”

The 25-year-old made his NRL debut with the Panthers in 2017 and scored five tries in nine NRL games in his first professional season.

A 2021 NRL winner, he made 56 appearances in 4 seasons at Penrith, scoring 10 tries.

A versatile player, who can play halfback, centre or back rower, May has represented Samoa on one occasion in 2018.

Catalans Dragons head coach Steve McNamara said: “Tyrone will add great quality, depth and competition for places within our team. He arrives as a current Grand Final winner and his versatility and ability to play many positions to a high standard will be a huge asset for us.”
