Ex-Hull FC forward Jansin Turgut joins new rugby league club three years after coma

Jansin Turgut returned to rugby league action over the weekend, three years after falling into a coma following a serious fall.

It’s news that will please everybody in the rugby league fraternity after Turgut had fallen three storeys; attaining severe injuries and being put on life support back in the summer of 2019.

A month-long coma followed before he admitted that the fall from a third storey car park in Ibiza had been a suicide attempt.

It’s been a long road to recovery, but now the Turkish international and current West Hull ARLFC head coach, is ready to go back onto the rugby league field.

Aged just 25, Turgut is likely to gather interest from various sides, with just under 50 Super League appearances under his belt already.

The second-rower also had spells at Doncaster and Featherstone Rovers.

Turgut tweeted: “It’s been a journey. From not knowing whether I’d survive, a month long coma and breaking multiple bones.
3 years later, with amazing support, plenty of tough times and a lot of unseen hard work, playing a Rugby League game again. I can’t even describe how amazing it feels!”

The Turkish international turned out for West Hull.
