Stood down Panther Tyrone May to benefit from ‘tight relationship’ with Clearys

Punishments have been handed down to three Panthers stars over controversial Grand Final celebrations, with one stood down and all fined a combined $18,500.

Nathan Cleary and Stephen Crichton have been fined $7000 and $4000 respectively over images which emerged on social media of the team celebrating with a broken Premiership trophy.

Tyrone May, meanwhile, has been fined $7,500 and stood down for his own post-final social media comments which “do not align with the values of the game”, having made reference to his conviction for illegally disseminating a sex video without consent.

Nine chief rugby league reporter Danny Weidler told Jim Wilson while Cleary and Crichton’s broken trophy incident “shouldn’t have happened”, the significance pales in comparison to May’s “disrespectful” post.

“To me, it showed he hasn’t really learned from what’s happened.

“He’s got a very tight relationship with certain people at the club; the coach, Ivan Cleary … I think he’s Nathan Cleary’s best mate.

“It’s a difficult situation for the Panthers, and it’s going to test the strength of their management.”
