Penrith Panthers playmaker Tyrone May has been unveiled as the player at the centre of the NRL's latest sex tape scandal.

The two videos were leaked just hours after NRL CEO Todd Todd Greenberg said players will receive lengthy bans if new tapes surface after Friday. It is understood that May's videos were filmed approximately nine months ago.

The NRL integrity unit has been made aware of the footage and will interview May regarding his involvement.

Sources close to the 22-year have revealed that he is struggling with the videos becoming public, who has been granted leave from the club. He will be allowed to train with his teammates through this time.

"Penrith Panthers was made aware late Friday afternoon of two videos involving a Panthers player being circulated on social media," the Panthers said in a statement.

"The club promptly informed the NRL integrity unit and has been assisting with their enquiries over the last 24 hours.

"Panthers wishes to unreservedly apologise to the club’s members, fans and sponsors for the hurt and embarrassment caused by the videos and subsequent media coverage.

"Panthers players and staff are acutely aware of the responsibility they have to the club and to the game to maintain impeccable standards of behaviour.

"The club does not hesitate to act by way of disciplinary action when these standards are not met.

"Panthers is working closely with the NRL integrity unit to expedite the investigation and achieve a final outcome as soon as possible."

  1. Unlike the Dylan Napa case where it happened while at his previous club. I think because May’s case happened recently with his current club a suspension will be given plus a fine. Wouldn’t surprise me with Gould’s knowledge of how this can effect the clubs sponsors, May just might get the sack. Could be at Parramatta within the week. 💪🐔👍
