Temepara George says the biggest fear she has in making herself available again for the New Zealand netball team is whether she's up to it.

The 33-year-old midcourter played the last of her 59 Tests in 2007 before withdrawing from the team a few months before the World Championships in Auckland for personal reasons.

She now captains the Northern Mystics in the trans-Tasman competition and says she's made a committment to Silver Ferns coach Ruth Aitken that she'll be available for the next two years, including the Commonwealth Games and the 2011 world championships in Singapore.

The Silver Ferns have three matches against an international invitational side in August followed by five Tests against Australia.
