The towering and full of life centre made his NRL debut back in 2008. It is well documented that Jamal could well have become an Olympian, but elected to play Rugby League as that was his true passion. He burst onto the scene after coming through the junior ranks at the Bulldogs, and finished his rookie season as the ‘2009 Dally M Rookie of the Year’. He has since played for the Gold Coast Titans before making his move to the Penrith Panthers where he had an outstanding 2014 season helping the Club to an unexpected Preliminary Finals appearance. Jamal has represented both his State and Country on one occasion, respectively and will be looking to make an immediate impact back in the NRL with the Wests Tigers in 2017.
