Sam Bremner’s goal of World Cup success was under threat when she came frame WIN Stadium hobbling during the interstate challenge.
Bremner suffered an ankle injury in NSW’s 22-6 win over Queensland in July, a game which was a comeback for her Helensburgh teammate Kezie Apps. Now both are officially part of Australia’s campaign to win a remarkable World Cup double.
Gerringong’s Ruan Sims and former Helensburgh star, halfback Maddie Studdon were also included.
"It's been an amazing year for our sport,” coach Brad Donald said.
“With the Jillaroos claiming a clean sweep against the Kiwis for the first time as part of the Auckland Nines and another win against them as part of the double-header Test Match in Canberra.
The Jillaroos campaign begins against the Cook Islands, as part of a triple-header on November 16 at Cronulla’s Southern Cross Stadium.
As the Kangaroos are firm favourites to take out the men’s crown, the Jillaroos will meet England and Canada before a likely semi-final showdown.
