Penrith Panthers supports the NRL decision to implement the no-fault stand down policy in relation to Panthers player Tyrone May.
The 22-year-old will be sidelined until his current court proceedings are concluded.
“The decision to stand down Tyrone May is not about passing judgement on guilt or innocence,” Panthers Chairman David O'Neill said.
“Panthers acknowledges the seriousness of the charges and agrees the decision is in the best interests of the game.
“May will continue to train with the club and we will work closely with the NRL and the RLPA to ensure his wellbeing.”
