Having become the first Silver Fern to play 150 Tests this morning, veteran midcourter Laura Langman admitted she had next to no idea she’d crossed such a significant milestone.
Langman, 32, became the first to notch 150 Tests in the black dress this morning, as the Silver Ferns fell to a narrow 53-50 defeat to Australia in London.
Langman said that she was completely in the dark as to the significance of this morning’s match.
“To be honest, I didn’t even know,” Langman said.
“The other day I did an interview. He said ‘you’re coming up to your 150th’ and I was like ‘oh jeepers!’
“If that’s not a sign you’ve been around too long, I don’t know what is.”
Langman also said that she’s relaxed about her future in the game, with no real aspirations on the immediate horizon.
“When I took a step back from netball, it really gave me perspective.
I no longer need to be the meticulously planned person, I’ve been a well oiled soldier for so long, I don’t make big bad plans anymore, I kind of just go with it.”
“I’m just taking it as it comes really.”
