NRL club reportedly interested in signing Hull KR star

Hull KR star signing Tyrone May has been subject to a lot of speculation despite only recently joining the club.

The former Catalans Dragons halfback has joined Hull KR ahead of the 2024 season after two impressive years at Catalans where he helped them to the Super League Grand Final last year playing excellent at stand-off.

That is the role he is set to play in 2024 at Hull KR with the club even letting go of Jordan Abdull who has joined the French side. The NRL Grand Final winner with Penrith Panthers has been awarded the number 27 shirt for the new season.

However, despite this Canterbury Bulldogs are reportedly interested in signing the versatile May according to the Daily Telegraph.

This comes as they report Canterbury are showing a keen interest in Terrell May, Tyrone’s brother, with a multi-year contract offer that could potentially lure the talented forward away from the Roosters. May emerged as one of the standout players for the Bondi club last season, rising from the NSW Cup to play a major role in the team’s impressive late-season run to the finals.

Thanks to his commanding presence in the middle of the field, May made 17 NRL appearances and even earned his first international cap for Samoa against Australia. Despite being only 24 years old, May’s contract with the Roosters is set to expire at the end of the upcoming 2024 season, with his management seeking offers of around $500,000 per season.

With May set to be a key part of the Robins’ squad in 2024, he is set to make his Super League debut for the club in a huge derby against Hull FC in the opening game of Super League in 2024 on February 15th.

A week after, the Robins will host Leeds Rhinos hoping for a similar result as last year when the two met at Craven Park.

Interestingly, this will be the second time the Robins will meet Leeds in 2024. This is because the two teams will meet at Headingley in James Donaldson’s Testimonial Match on February 4th in a pre-season friendly.
