Jamal Idris is currently in 5th place in the race to be selected in the 2015 Harvey Norman Rugby League Indigenous All Stars squad.

Johnathan Thurston, Greg Inglis, Sam Thaiday and Andrew Fifita are the four players ahead of Jamal.
 
Less than 22 votes are separating Thurston and Inglis for the top position after more than 6500 fans placed their votes in the first two weeks of polling.
 
Also entering the race today was Newcastle Knights player Dane Gagai, who put his hand up for selection with his recovery from injury ahead of schedule.
 
“I am really excited about being able to get back into the race for the Indigenous All Stars,” Gagai said.
 
“As soon as I was given the green light in terms of fitness, I put my hand back up to re-enter the voting.
 
“I haven’t played in an All Stars yet, but when I hear about the week from the rest of the boys, it is a concept that I really want to be a part of, so I hope fans will begin to vote for me.”
