death – Obituary News : South Sydney Rabbitohs fans are in mourning as the club announced the tragic death of premiership-winner Kyle Turner at the age of 31. In honor of Turner’s contributions to the team, the Rabbitohs will retire his jersey number 15 and wear black armbands during their match against Newcastle this weekend.

Described as an “amazing human being” by Rabbitohs chief executive Blake Solly, Turner was known for his toughness and uncompromising playing style on the field, while being a kind and generous man off the field. He played a total of 91 first-grade games for the Rabbitohs between 2014 and 2019.

Turner’s career highlights include starting from the bench in the Rabbitohs’ historic 2014 grand final victory, where the team ended a decades-long premiership drought. He also represented NSW Country in the last City vs Country fixture in 2017 and played for the Indigenous All Stars in 2015 and 2017.

Unfortunately, Turner’s time in first-grade was marred by injuries. He suffered a serious neck injury during the 2015 All Stars match, which required disc replacement surgery. Despite these setbacks, Turner remained a fan favorite and received the Burrow Supporters Group Appreciation Award at the club’s awards night in 2016.

In 2019, Turner fell out of favor under the Rabbitohs’ new coach Wayne Bennett, who advised him to seek opportunities elsewhere from 2020. Turner returned to his hometown of Coonabarabran in northern New South Wales, where he played for the local team, Coonabarabran Unicorns, and became a schoolteacher.

The Coonabarabran Unicorns will also pay tribute to Turner by wearing black armbands this weekend. The beloved player’s cause of death is currently.
