NSW and Jillaroos live wire fullback Sammy Bremner has confirmed she won’t participate in the Rugby League World Cup final against the Kiwi Ferns tomorrow afternoon.
Bremner – who won the last World Cup with Australia in 2013 - fractured her fibula leading into the first match, and has been racing the clock to play some part in what has already been a successful Jillaroos campaign.
Unfortunately, Bremner broke the news on her Instagram account that she will not line up at Suncorp Stadium.
“I’ve unfortunately fractured my fibula in training, but the good news is everything is still perfectly healthy with my voice box so I’ll be cheering the house down tomorrow afternoon for our Jillaroos as they take out the 2017 World Cup,” Bremner said on Instagram.
“Even though this is not how I visioned my World Cup experience to be, I really wouldn’t want to change my journey for anyone else’s.
“I have learnt so much more about myself and what my body and mind is capable of – which makes me proud…and better yet, I have learnt about the kind souls I have surrounded myself with, I couldn’t have a better group of family and friends if I tried.
“Within this deep dissapointment (sic), I still count myself the luckiest girl alive.”
The Jillaroos fight for the World Cup tomorrow afternoon against New Zealand at Suncorp Stadium, live on 7Mate from 4.15pm (AEST).
