Jamal Idris and CEO Justin Pascoe

Wests Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe says that the signing of Jamal Idris is an exciting move for the entire organisation following on from a strong 2016 season.

Idris will join Wests Tigers in 2017 after spending 18 months away from rugby league, with Pascoe emphasising the significance of having the former Australian and New South Wales representative in the NRL and committed to the next stage of his career.

“As a Club, we are really pleased to have Jamal at Wests Tigers next year,” Pascoe said. “We’re thrilled that he’s decided to embark on the next stage of his playing career with us.

“We all know what he can do on the field and we look forward to seeing him do it in a Wests Tigers jersey next season,” he said. “Jamal’s been a fan favourite everywhere that he’s played and I’m sure that Wests Tigers Members and fans are excited to have him with us.

“We had a lot of positive signs both on and off the field in 2016 and Jamal’s signing is another step in the right direction for this organisation,” said Pascoe.
