Former Super League forward Jansin Turgut to return to rugby league after coma and serious injury

Former Hull FC and Salford Red Devils forward Jansin Turgut is set to return to rugby league.

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.

He posted this on Twitter: “Great news! I have had the all clear that I can play rugby league again. After battling mental illness leading to a suicide attempt, a month long coma, being told I may not walk again too overcoming mental health and nearly almost back fully fit. I feel amazing!”
