Langman considers netball retirement

Sunday, November 05, 2017

AUCKLAND - Former Silver Fern Laura Langman has hinted at retirement.

The midcourter has posted a cryptic message and photo on social media thanking a range of people for the "fairy tale full to the brim of memories, terrible photos, laughs and learnings."

Langman says she has been humbled and grateful.

She finishes the piece by saying "Until our paths cross again".

Earlier this week it was announced Langman was leaving the Sunshine Coast Lightning in Australia to return home, with the intention of taking 2018 off netball.

The shock decision to terminate her contract in Australia has opened the door for a return to the Silver Ferns ahead of next year's Commonwealth Games.

But while the loophole is there for Langman to meet the eligibility requirements for the New Zealand team, it is not clear whether she intends to use it.

The dynamic midcourter was blocked from playing for New Zealand this season after her decision to play in the Australian league made her ineligible for selection.
