Idris to join Titans on a five-year contract
The Jetstar Gold Coast Titans have secured one of the biggest names in the game by today announcing the signing of emerging superstar Jamal Idris on a significant five-year contract.
The 20-year-old, who made his NRL debut for the Bulldogs at 17 years of age and has since become one of the brightest stars in the game, has today agreed to terms with the Jetstar Titans to join the club from 2012 until the end of the 2016 season.
The signing of the 115kg, 194cm centre is viewed as one of the biggest in the club's history, particularly given Idris has been recently rated as one of the highest profile athletes in Rugby League.
The Indigenous All Stars and NSW State of Origin representative, who hails from Forster-Tuncurry on the NSW North Coast, said he was looking forward to the challenge at his new home from next season and cited the lifestyle change to the Gold Coast as one of the key reasons behind his decision to sign with the Jetstar Titans.
