Idris signing will hurt toothless Tigers

SO, the Wests Tigers have signed Jamal Idris to help revive their finals prospects. I hope they know what they’re doing.

He hasn’t played for 18 months and was never a player to produce effort after effort.

Sure, he has the size and body shape to make an impression. But he’ll be amazed at the added pace in the game since he last ran into touch.

The Tigers never fail to concern me these days. There have been widespread media reports on “welfare problems” within the club.

I get the impression someone is loading the gun but doesn’t have the balls to fire it.

The only problem I’m aware of within my old club is that they’re yet to re-sign their four big guns. They seem to be preoccupied with the proposed “Centre of Excellence”.

Wow. Now won’t that produce a player of quality? Yes, in about five years’ time, if they’re lucky. The club needs a senior management culling.
