Rugby league Immortal Andrew Johns has had Penrith winger Taylan May hanged after a hand gaffe, embarrassing the young star in yet another post-match confusion with the Knights legend.
‘Joey’ Johns entered Penrith’s Bluebet Stadium sheds after the game after the Origin fill-in squad defeated the Bulldogs 30-18 and recalled Izack Tago and Taylan May for a quick interview.

The Newcastle legend’s first mistake came when he got Tago’s name all wrong.
“I’ve got Patrick Tago here,” Johns continued… Nine’s Friday night golden point show after the game.
At the end of the interview, Johns lent and said, ‘Thanks for your time, guys, you’re killing it,’ before quickly turning to bring out Penrith, Scott Sorenson.
May’s right hand remained cold, but he held it up as he laughed away the shame.
The 20-year-old then hugged teammate Tago, put his hands on his head and ran into the locker room to take his face away from the camera.
Nine placed the stuff on Twitter with the caption, “Pour one out for Taylan May.”
It wasn’t the first time one of the broadcaster’s footy legends turned commentators had been involved in a humorous on-camera thing-up.
In Friday night’s Cowboys v Titans Queensland derby, former North Queensland halfback Johnathan Thurston dropped the wrecking ball James Taumalolo before the game.
‘Did I just hang you? Sorry, kid,” Thurston laughed.
May scored in the 26th minute of the game against the Dogs with an insane aerial stunt, launching himself into the corner to avoid opposing winger Jacob Kiraz.
2021 Panthers debutant Taylan May has scored 12 tries in 12 appearances for the club, and is in a tie for most tries in the 2022 NRL season
The 2021 debutant scored 12 tries in 12 games for the Panthers and is currently tied with injured Storm fullback Ryan Papenhuyzen as the season’s best try-scorer.
He ranks fifth for most running yards, averaging 171 per game, behind fellow Panther Dylan Edwards.
The Panthers showed their class won despite an Origin-driven squad change, with six players on NSW representative duties.
