Tyrone May to ‘take ownership’ of behaviour after Penrith Panthers contract termination
24-year-old utility Tyrone May has been sacked by the Penrith Panthers with one year left on his contract.
The club’s board found his controversial social media post after the Grand Final is a serious breach of his contractual obligations.
Panthers CEO Brian Fletcher told Jim Wilson the star was remorseful, and will now “take ownership” of improving his behaviour.
“I would say one thing, he owned up to what had gone wrong.
“We’ve got our welfare people with Tyrone helping him, and trying to … protect him as well.”
However, two previous breaches helped the board make their decision to sack him, Mr Fletcher admitted.
“The club’s bigger than one player.”
