Suspended NRL star Taylan May has HUGE win in court that will prevent the Panthers from sacking him - for now

NRL career of Panthers star Taylan May remains in limboStood down last month under code's no fault stand down policyCharged with domestic violence related offences last monthSamoan international has halted a second hearing about his futureThe 22-year-old is fighting his potential sacking from Penrith

Suspended NRL star Taylan May has secured a win in the Federal Court over the Panthers which will prevent the club staging a second hearing to discuss his potential immediate sacking.

May, 22, who has been stood down under the code's no fault stand down policy after being charged with domestic violence related offences against his wife last month, has already been issued a show cause notice by the Panthers in relation to prior unrelated incidents.

According to News Corp, Penrith powerbrokers wanted to hand May another show cause hearing where it was likely he would be moved on from the reigning NRL premiers.

But via his lawyers, the Samoan international has stopped that hearing from proceeding after successfully arguing for an injunction in the Federal Court in Sydney on Friday.

It was suggested sacking May would breach his rights as a professional rugby league player.

May is then expected to launch proceedings of his own against the Panthers.

He plans to also fight allegations he punched his wife, Jessica May, in the face during an altercation on April 8 and later stalked her.

He pleaded not guilty to three domestic violence-related charges when he appeared in Penrith Local Court on May 28.

It comes after the 22-year-old signed a two-year extension worth $1.2million with the Panthers in March.

It is also understood the show cause notice from Penrith was unrelated to the domestic violence related charges, but instead stemmed from a list of alleged off field indiscretions since his NRL debut in 2021.

One such alleged indiscretion was May posting a video on his Instagram account of him in the passenger seat of a car driving at almost 100km per hour in a residential zone.

He will next appear in Penrith Local Court on March 10 next year where has pleaded not guilty to alleged domestic violence offences.

The Panthers declined to comment on Friday's court ruling.
