Club Statement: Taylan May

Penrith Panthers can confirm that Queensland Police have charged player Taylan May with assault occasioning bodily harm.

The charge relates to an incident that occurred in November 2021, while May was on leave following the 2021 NRL season.

The club was made aware of the incident at the time, informed the NRL Integrity Unit and undertook an investigation into the matter.

The club subsequently implemented disciplinary measures against May, while giving fair consideration to the circumstances of the incident, and deemed the matter finalised.

The NRL has not imposed any disciplinary measures against May, therefore he is eligible for NRL selection.

As the matter is now before the courts, the club will make no further comment until those proceedings have concluded.
