Baby joy as Bremner announces second pregnancy

Things can, quite literally, change at any time, especially if you're Jillaroos star Sammy Bremner.

Less than a month after signalling her intentions to reclaim her status as the game's best fullback this season, Bremner has confirmed she's expecting a second child with husband Wayne later this year.

The Dragons NRLW fullback announced her pregnancy via Instagram on Sunday in a heart-warming post with her son Reef, 20 months, by her side.

"We decided we like Reefy so much that we made another one," Bremner wrote.

"Although this little Brem (small dinosaur) is making me bust out of my wetty [wetsuit] already."

Bremner was due to run out for Helensburgh in the Harvey Norman NSW Premiership competition for the first half of the year but was a late withdrawal from the club's trial games before also missing the past month of the competition.

She told NRL.com in March her commitments and mindset had changed towards rugby league since giving birth to Reef in 2019.

However, she remained determined to recapture enough form to put herself in the frame for World Cup selection with the Jillaroos at season's end.

"My body feels good and I was ready to go at pre-season in November," Bremner said last month.

"My mindset is on wanting to be the best fullback there is and I'm determined to do that.

"If [Jillaroos coach] Brad Donald told me I was going to be fullback for the next five years I'd just put my feet up. If my position is under threat I want to go harder and I won't budge on it."

Bremner missed the 2019 season with her first pregnancy but stunned Jillaroos high-performance staff with her strength and conditioning results on her return. 

After a luckless injury run previously, she got through last year's NRL Telstra Women's Premiership but like the Dragons outfit, struggled to make an impact in the competition.

"I've been more surprised physically with how better I feel being older," Bremner said. "After having Reef you don't get a lot of time to yourself so you want to get more done on the training paddock."
