PENRITH stars Nathan Cleary and Tyrone May have both been handed NRL suspensions and substantial fines for being ‘untruthful’ in dealings with the NRL’s Integrity Unit, as they were quizzed about the infamous TikTok fiasco.
It comes after Cleary was caught breaking social distancing rules when photos of him emerged sitting with a group of girls on his couch at home in April.
At the time, he said the women were at his home for only 10 minutes as they waited for an Uber.

However, the Penrith star was apparently caught in a lie when a contradictory TikTok video was released on social media.
The NRL has now slapped him with a two-match ban and a $30,000 fine.
May has also been handed a two-game suspension and a $15,000 for also allegedly lying about the same incident.
The 23-year-old is already serving a four-match suspension after he was convicted of filming four sex tapes without the consent of the women involved.
He was also fined 25 per cent of his NRL salary.
Both players have five days to respond to the breach notices before a final determination is made.
