‘I’ll sign there in heartbeat’: Roosters star puts rival clubs on notice with big reveal

An “honest” Terrell May revealed he will only discuss a move with clubs willing to also snap up his brothers Taylan and Tyrone, with all three set to be off contract at the end of the year.

Terrell, who put in a number of impressive displays for the Roosters and earned an international debut for Samoa last year, spoke of his desire for the May trio to be reunited on the Bloke In A Bar podcast.

The 24-year-old also confirmed Roosters coach Trent Robinson is fully aware of his grand wish, although there’s no indication the Bondi-based club will be the one to bring the May brothers together at the same club.

“I want to be honest here, my talks are with whoever wants to sign us three brothers, that’s where I want to be,” May said.

“Robbo knows too. I haven’t hid it from him. Whichever club wants three brothers, that’s where I’ll be at.

“We are all off at the same time. That’s the preference, if a club can get all three of us, I’ll sign there in a heartbeat no matter what. I think everyone would.

“If you have two brothers you could be at the same club with, I think you’d want to be there no matter the situation.

“Clubs have shown interest, but it’s just what club we want to be at.

“I want to stay at Roosters, but it’s hard when you have brothers.”

But if Terrell’s dream of playing alongside his brothers doesn’t come to fruition, he declared he’d want to “be at the Roosters for the rest of my life” or with Penrith.

Terrell is the only one of the May brothers not to have played for the Panthers, with Tyrone spending five seasons at the club before moving to Catalans Dragons and Hull while Taylan remains at the reigning premiers.

However, Tyrone and Taylan have endured their share of issues while at the Panthers.

Tyrone pleaded guilty to four counts of intentionally recording an image without consent and was sentenced to 300 hours of community service in January 2020.

As for Taylan, he was found guilty of assaulting a male after the Panthers’ grand final win in 2021, although he avoided a criminal conviction and only had to pay a $1000 fine.
