Bradford Bulls heart attack victim Adrian Purtell cleared to play again

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Adrian Purtell, pictured in pre-season training, can play competitive rugby again from March Adrian Purtell, pictured in pre-season training, can play competitive rugby again from March

Adrian Purtell has been handed a massive boost after being given the green light to resume his playing career.

The Bulls centre’s future was plunged into serious doubt when he suffered a heart attack in the aftermath of the Magic Weekend encounter with Leeds at the Etihad Stadium on May 27.

The end of his long road to recovery is now finally in sight after leading sports cardiologist Sanjay Sharma told him he could start playing again in three months.

Purtell must take medication as a procedure for nine months after his heart attack and is still unable to take part in full contact training, but he should be back in contention to play again in March.

The 27-year-old Aussie recently had an MRI Scan at Leeds General Infirmary before undergoing intensive stress tests at St George’s Hospital in London on Wednesday, which gave him the news he craved.

“I couldn’t have hoped for any better news,” said Purtell.

Adrian Purtell

Hopefully I’ve had all my bad luck now and can just get back to playing almost a full season with the boys

“I’m delighted because I still feel I’ve got a lot of years left in my playing career. I went down there on Wednesday with high hopes, even though I was expecting the worst, and it’s been a great outcome.”

Professor Sharma put Purtell through a series of tests on Wednesday and the former Penrith Panthers man added: “I was on a treadmill with an ECG and it gradually got harder on a bigger incline.

“They monitored how my heart responded and Professor Sharma has been awesome to deal with.

“He was very blunt and put things in layman’s terms.”

Purtell will head back home to Australia to see friends and family at Christmas.

He added: “I’m on medication for my blood, which I need to keep taking for another three months.

“I’ve then got another appointment in three months, which is just a check-up, but I should be okay to play after that.

“I haven’t even thought what game I’m going to come back for.

“I’m just going to train hard for the next couple of months to get my body right.

“Hopefully I’ve had all my bad luck now and can just get back to playing almost a full season with the boys.

“I’m a big fan of Christmas, so I’m looking forward to being home with my family and friends, especially on the back of this kind of news.”

Bulls coach Francis Cummins said: “It’s great news for Adrian and for us as a club and a team.

“It wasn’t that long ago we were hoping that Purts was simply going to have his health and that he could just live his life.

“To get this news is huge for us.”

Meanwhile, Brian Noble will be selling copies of his new book at the Bulls’ Christmas Fayre on Sunday between midday and 5pm.

Jamie Langley is also holding a stall selling his We Are Taurus merchandise and there will be a Tombola with items donated by the Bulls players.

Talking seriously for a moment.
I do not think it is such a wise decision to allow this guy to play again.
I would imagine any opposition players would be loathe to put a "big hit" on Purtell for fear of causing an adverse reaction, and imagine how any player who did (hopefully never happen) cause lasting or worse damage, how would they feel.
As I say, hopefully nothing untowards will happen, but I think the risks are too high in what is regarded by us all as the toughest sport in the world.

I think a heart surgeon/specialist may have a bit more inside knowledge of how the heart works and if a guy is fit enough to resume a career in a collision sport than your average Rhino supporter. Once you have a heart attack it doesn't mean you can't resume a normal life-and as his was caused by a blood clot there are drugs available to keep his blood thinner which are not banned by the drug testers if he needs it.
Look at Asa Hartford-written off and ended up playing for England

Murrell would be a good signing, he can play various positions. When a kid at Leeds he was highly thought of, just had the bad luck to be there when Burrows and Maguire were breaking thru so he left for Hull KR. While not a world beater he is a reliable sort, which can`t be said of Sammutt he`s either brilliant or rubbish, Murrell is a team player.

Who on this site could believe anything of a sincere nature from two charlatans? You have no conscience, compassion or empathy. All you see is your own perceived egotistic reality,which you think is funny or just banter, but to everybody else it's incoherant , nasty and vindictive bile from two sad individuals.

The cardiologist that gave him the OK to play in a charity RU game in October was that very same Cardiologist Professor Sanjay Sharma. He was also the consultant Cardiologist for team GB.at the 2012 Olympics. But should he wish advice no doubt he can contact you two? PS It's typical of you two to try to spin a negative from something so positive and courageous, but you can make amends by donating your organs. Good News is they do wait for 'em to become available.[/p][/quote]Maybe they do wait for organs to become available, but obviously they don't bother when it comes to balls as they seem to have took yours ages ago and replaced it with a mangina.[/p][/quote]Thanks Shelf you and Ifall... Are running true to form, and prove exactly what we all think? If you can take an attitude like that to something so serious, involving anyone who has been through what Adrian Purtell has had to go through, I am afraid there is no hope for you or the other clown like you that is allowed to infest this site. PS: you could donate your brain as it's hardly used?[/p][/quote]What part of my first post did you find negative. Get your wife to read it to you before she goes out.[/p][/quote]Quote: "I do not think it is such a wise decision to allow this guy to play again." unquote. Is that a positive statement? Who are you to decide that statement, and remember we know you and Clown 2 well enough to realise that you will always find something spiteful to write!

Trolling a story about a player recovering from a serious medical condition? REALLY?
Get over yourself you indignant tart.
Nobody was trolling, I raised a genuine point about how opposing players might view tackling Purtell.
If you don't agree, report me or stfu moron.
Aw look - a keyboard warrior!
As a resident of Shelf myself and a long-time season ticket holder at Headingley you are an embarrassment to both the village and the Rugby club. Every village has an idiot and ours is a belter! Well done!
PS A friend once asked me if I was "Shelfrhino". I treated the enquiry with the contempt it deserved!

No keyboard warrior here pal. If you don't agree with what I post, ignore it, or if you think I'm out of order report me, it's as easy as that. Don't come on trying to act as the moderator though, you are far too boring and up yourself to manage that.
As for living in Shelf, I don't anymore, it was only ever a temporary stop off for me, far to many planks like you living there.
