Maloney facing ban as Origin hopes suffer another blow

Maloney facing ban as Origin hopes suffer another blow The NRL match review committee has slapped the struggling Panthers No.6 with two charges from Penrith's loss to the Raiders. Maloney, under siege from in-form Roosters pivot Luke Keary and Rabbitohs star Cody Walker to maintain his spot in Brad Fittler's NSW side, will miss the Panthers' clash with the Tigers during Magic Round if he accepts early guilty pleas on both charges. The match review committee issued a grade one dangerous contact charge on John Bateman on top of a dangerous throw sanction for a second half tackle on Josh Hodgson.

Penrith have opened up dialogue with James Maloney's management about a potential early release that would see the incumbent NSW five-eighth move to England a year earlier than scheduled.

Maloney has openly flagged his interest in venturing overseas with a lucrative retirement package in his sights, however he has maintained his commitment to his current contract.

‘’I’ve been quite open and honest and have told everyone that my stint at Penrith will probably see me out of the NRL and I’d love to finish my career with a stint in the Super League,'' Maloney told Sky Sports' Big Sports Breakfast last month.

‘’But as far as I know I haven’t heard anything about that being next year rather than the year after.

‘’I’ve got no doubt I could probably go a couple more [years] over here.

‘’I signed a three-year deal out here with every intent of playing three years so I don’t know what is going on in terms of the rumours at the moment.’’

However, The Daily Telegraph reports there have been developments with his situation as Penrith consider allowing him to walk with a year remaining on his deal.

James Maloney will have his sights set on a fitting grand final farewell after confirming he'll leave the NRL at the end of the season to finish his stellar career in Super League . Penrith on Wednesday confirmed the 33-year-old NSW State of Origin playmaker has been granted a release from the final

The idea was first floated by former general manager Phil Gould, who believed it was an opportune time for Maloney to move to England, at a board meeting last year.

With Gould out the door, the club is revisting the prospect of Maloney's early departure.

But if the 32-year-old wanted to stay at the foot of the mountains and honour the final year of his contract, Penrith would respect his decision.

Panthers coach Ivan Cleary has not been afraid to make tough decisions, dropping prop Reagan Campbell-Gillard and winger Josh Mansour to reserve grade in light of recent results.

Maloney isn't the only player attracting interest elsewhere - speedster Dallin Watene-Zelezniak has been linked to Parramatta, although he denied the rumours on Tuesday, while recalled fullback Dylan Edwards has been tied to North Queensland.

Penrith host the Warriors at Panthers Stadium on Friday night in hope of turning their 2-7 start to the season around.
