NRL star one step closer to inking Super League deal amidst rival interest

NRL star Tyrone May is one step closer to signing for a Super League side.

That’s according to the Daily Telegraph, which has reported that May is apparently seriously close to inking a deal with the Catalans Dragons, although the paper reveals there is speculation of other clubs having an interest, as well as the NRL leaving the door open for a remarkable return.

Indeed, new Dragons recruit Mitchell Pearce has spoken about how he would take May under his wing if the expected deal is announced soon.

“I like trying to help people out,” Pearce said.

“He’s a really good player.”

Here was a 25-year-old with a Grand Final winners’ ring having his contract terminated after a social media post referencing his previous criminal conviction caused consternation at the Panthers.

May also has links with the Catalans general manager, Alex Chan, who coached him back in 2014 with Penrith’s under 18- SG Ball side.

A move to the Super League would enable the 25-year-old to refresh amidst a current barrage of criticism levelled at him and his past indiscretion.

It would also enable the Dragons to head to the field with an extremely competitive playmaker waiting patiently for an opportunity.

The south of France has been an increasingly inviting place to come for those in the NRL, with the likes of James Maloney, Dean Whare, Sam Kasiano and Josh Drinkwater all making their mark in recent seasons.
