After 18 months away from international netball, the Silver Ferns most capped player, dynamic midcourter Laura Langman, made a remarkable return in 2018 when she assumed the captaincy.

After making her Silver Ferns debut in 2005, Langman has fashioned an enviable record, including an incredible unbroken run of Tests since making her debut.

Renowned for her high work rate and energy levels, Langman has continued the push to the boundaries be a better player. In 2016, she became the first current Silver Fern to play for an Australian team (the NSW Swifts) in the ANZ Championship.

She has since played two seasons with the Sunshine Coast-based Lightning team in the Australian league.

Langman’s athleticism and never-say-die attitude have often proved game-changing attributes. Held in high esteem, Langman has gone on to become one of the most influential and respected midcourters in world Netball.

Capable of playing all three midcourt positions, Langman is blessed with dazzling speed and athleticism, the super-talented athlete being renowned for her all-round abilities on both attack and defence.

Langman will captain the Silver Ferns at her fourth Netball World Cup in Liverpool, 2019 after also representing New Zealand at the sport’s pinnacle event in 2007, 2011 and 2015. She has also attended three Commonwealth Games (2006, 2010, 2014).
