Wests Tigers big name recruit Jamal Idris says its vital both he and the team get the 2017 NRL season to a good start.

Idris’s return to the NRL after signing a one year contract with the Tigers was a major coup for the club that finished a solitary point out of the finals in 2016.

With games first up against Souths and then Penrith and the Raiders, 26 year old Idris (pictured) says after two years out of the NRL, its important that he replays the club for its faith in giving him another chance in the NRL.
