Despite being off contract at the end of this season, not much has been heard on the future of injured Tigers centre Jamal Idris since he tore his ACL in May. However, that doesn’t mean that Idris plans on calling it a day.
According to The Daily Telegraph, Idris plans to play on in 2018, whether that be at the Tigers, or elsewhere.
“Jamal has indicated to me that provided the knee is right, he is keen to keep playing,” said Idris’ manager, Sam Ayoub.
“The Tigers have indicated they just want to see how the knee is coming along, but I’ve had a little bit of interest in him from other clubs.”
At his best, Idris is one the league’s better defensive centres, and effectively adds an extra forward to a side as well.
He never looked especially fit at the Tigers, but if he’s healthy and motivated, he could still be a decent signing for any club needing help in the outside backs.
Idris has played 136 first grade games for the Tigers, Panthers, Titans and Bulldogs, 1 Origin for New South Wales, and 1 Test for Australia.
