    I heard a rumour the Broncos were going to run out 9 second row forwards next year?

    We need size in the centres, but said size should be comprised of muscle, not Cheese Twisties.

    Also we wouldn't make him shred down and play in the centres where he should be, we will allow to stay unfit and overweight to add to our impressive collection of average backrowers.

    If you were to sum him up in one word, "Moobs" would have to be right up there.

    Have a watch of Denan Kemps interview snippets with Idris this week, it might give you another perspective into him. Was a really insightful interview and he comments on that infamous photo of him without a shirt on at training that day

    Tigers CEO Justin Pascoe confirmed to the Market Watch podcast that the club is in talks with his management to get Idris in an orange and black jersey next season.

    Meh. Will be good to see him back. Hard to tackle someone that big!

    Not sure if the Tigers are the right environment for a mentally fragile player, but it could be a good story of redemption for them both next year - who knows?

    Broncos are looking for a big unit, Dave Taylor is on the market. But supposedly the dragons are favourites.

    at this stage its just snippets on the locker room facebook page, but it should be out by tomorrow arvo in full.

    Idris raises some pretty good points
    - his job is to play football, not to have a ripped body
    - he had done nothing wrong
    - he was an 18 year old kid who some fucking media journo, who is prob fatter than him, is ridiculing
    - "thats why my body has always looked like, its what my body looks like"

    I remember laughing at that photo when it first came out but hearing him talk about it really puts it into perspective

    His 1 on 1 with Sterlo was a pretty good interview last week but it left me feeling like I couldn't decide whether he was brutally honest or a deadset nutter.

    most brutally honest people are deadset nutters
    ive met the big unit once actually, he was super friendly, a bit odd but a nice bloke. Wouldnt shock me if he was gay or something, but he seemed like a decent enough fella.

    Totally different outlook on life to the average footy player

    Being in shape is part of playing footy

    In his eyes. Many would disagree.
    - he was an 18 year old kid who some fucking media journo, who is prob fatter than him, is ridiculing
    The journo's job isn't to stay in shape and play footy. If only first graders can be critical of other footballers than someone tell the godfather to shut this joint down.
    - "thats why my body has always looked like, its what my body looks like".
    Oh well then, that settles that. Every other player puts in the effort to change their body once they hit first grade. The fact that he doesn't have the commitment to do it despite his talent tells me he shouldn't be playing footy.

    I remember laughing at that photo when it first came out but hearing him talk about it really puts it into perspective.
    To me he comes across as a bloke who is too lazy to do whats required of him. What's worse is that after his break from footy he obviously wants back in but is still blaming others for his poor judgement.
    Everything I've said could well be wrong and i'll happily admit it if he proves me wrong either in the interview or on the field but I damn sure don't want him playing for the team I support at this point in time.

    No wonder he didn't want to meet up with me in Townsville. Sad
