New Zealand forward Jeremy Brockie is delighted to be back on the international scene after recovering from a broken leg.

The 22-year old Newcastle Jets recruit sustained the injury whilst playing for the North Queensland Fury in the A-League last season and initially he feared he may miss the World Cup but he has returned to full fitness and managed some game time in the 2-1 friendly loss to Australia on Monday night.

Brockie said he was enjoying his time with the All Whites squad and said he should be in peak condition come tournament time.

“It's good to be back on the international scene,'' Brockie said. "I missed a few tours with injuries, but it's good to be back around the boys.

“The leg felt fine and the body felt fine and it's only going to get better the more games I play.

"I am definitely lacking a bit of match fitness, but if I can get 30 minutes here and there I'll be right for the World Cup.”
