May to start in grand final for Panthers

Tyrone May will be thrown into the Penrith Panthers’ starting side for Sunday’s NRL grand final and given the task of shutting down Melbourne’s lethal left-edge duo of Justin Olam and Josh Addo-Carr.

The Herald can reveal Penrith will roll the dice for a second consecutive week, with coach Ivan Cleary opting to start May at right-centre alongside winger Brian To’o, winning the nod over Brent Naden. Naden was named at centre on Tuesday, but the 24-year-old will start the game on the bench as part of a late reshuffle to the minor premiers’ line-up.

Penrith are reluctant to go into the game without a specialist outside-back option on a bench that will also include Kurt Capewell, Moses Leota and former Roosters prop Zane Tetevano.

Veteran Dean Whare, 20-year-old prop Spencer Leniu, five-eighth Matt Burton and back-up hooker Mitch Kenny are all expected to be dropped from the 21-man squad Cleary named earlier in the week.
