Jansin Turgut represents Turkey

Jansin Turgut completed a remarkable return to the sport and represented Turkey in Australia on Monday.

The former Salford and Hull man suffered life-threatening injuries after falling from a car park in Ibiza in 2019. The 26-year-old returned to the amateur game earlier this year, and faced Australian Defence Force with Turkey as a curtain-raiser for the Anzac Day clash between St George Illawarra Dragons and the Sydney Roosters.

Herbie Farnworth back in England contention

Brisbane Broncos centre Herbie Farnworth is back in England contention says head coach Shaun Wane.

Farnworth, 22, was dropped from Wane’s elite squad 12 months ago after failing to meet his standards off the pitch.

Wane said: “He’s gone on the meetings I’ve had with the NRL players on time. People might think that’s nothing but to me it’s everything.

“I watch him play every week and he’s doing well with Brisbane. He’s a talent and a good athlete and he’s playing really well. I can definitely see him playing in the World Cup.”
