SYDNEY - Less than a year after Penrith released Michael Jennings to the Sydney Roosters, the Panthers have found someone capable of filling the superstar centre's shoes — Jamal Idris.

In a shock move, Idris joined the Panthers from the Gold Coast on Tuesday for the next three NRL seasons.

It is a swap for fellow centre Brad Tighe, who has moved to the Titans on a two-year deal.

Idris, who was released by the Titans on compassionate grounds to be closer to his sick mother, joins Jamie Soward, Elijah Taylor, Brent Kite and Peter Wallace as high-profile off-season recruits at the foot of the mountains.

In a statement released by the Panthers, Gould could hardly contain his excitement at the signing of Idris.
