This week Laura Langman of Ngāti Paoa is to play her last test for the Silver Ferns before taking up a one-year deal with the Sunshine Coast Lightning for the Australian domestic league. The move means Langman won't be able to play for New Zealand next year as any player playing in Australia is ineligible for Silver Ferns selection.
