Penrith centre Jamal Idris has been stood down by the NRL club, reportedly due to an alcohol-related incident.

According to News Corp on Thursday night, Idris was involved in an incident on the Gold Coast while the club had a bye last round.

The Panthers issued a statement that noted Idris needed time off to address some personal issues, but they didn't relate to disciplinary matters.

He will be unavailable for Friday night's clash with Parramatta and no time frame was given for his return to the field.

"Jamal Idris will be taking a break from rugby league, effective immediately," read the statement.

"The club has been working closely with the NRL this week to put a support system in place to help Jamal deal with some personal issues.

"The club stresses that this matter has nothing to do with disciplinary action."

Is Simon Mannering the best Warriors player of all time?

Yes, without a doubt. He's a brilliant player.

No, Stacey Jones remains the greatest.

He's right up there but others were better.

It's too hard to compare him with former players.
