Panthers young gun Tyrone May has been outed as one of the men featuring in the latest sex-tape scandal.

May was hooked from Penrith’s trial game against the Eels on Saturday, which his side lost 20-0, with the 22-year-old Samoan international to be interviewed by the NRL’s Integrity Unit over the footage, believed to be nine months old.

There are two men — one of which is May, according to a report from The Sunday Telegraph — and two women in the videos that have been circulating social media, and the Integrity Unit viewed the content on Saturday.

One of the videos shows a man, understood to be May thanks to a distinctive tattoo, calling the woman a “ ratbag” and pushing the back of her head during the sex act.

There is no suggestion of any criminal wrongdoing by anyone in the video.

The Panthers released a statement on Saturday apologising “unreservedly” for the “hurt and embarrassment” caused by the leaked footage.

“The club promptly informed the NRL Integrity Unit and has been assisting with their inquiries over the last 24 hours,” the club said.

“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.”
