Ambassador Bremner confirms broken fibula

Jillaroos fullback and St George Illawarra Ambassador Sam Bremner has confirmed a broken fibula as the reason why she hasn't featured at the 2017 Woman's Rugby League World Cup.

Ahead of the tournament final against the Kiwi Ferns at Suncorp Stadium this weekend, Bremner took to social media on Friday morning to confirm the unfortunate news.

"Feeling so grateful to have spent four whole weeks with this lot, thank you to everyone at home for the kind messages and phone calls the past three weeks, not a day has gone by without someone checking to see how I was," Bremner said on Instagram.

"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.

"Even though this is not how I visioned (sic) 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 disappointment, I still count myself the luckiest girl alive."

The Jillaroos' World Cup campaign will culminate on Saturday afternoon at 4:45pm (AEDT) where fellow Dragons Ambassador Kezie Apps is expected to line up in the back row.
