Silver Ferns captain Katrina Grant says she's accepted the possibility of losing the national captaincy ahead of the first squad naming since the disastrous Commonwealth Games campaign in April.
While preparing for the domestic premiership final with the Central Pulse, Grant has said she'd be "fine" if she wasn't named in the next squad and would understand if selectors felt there was a better person to lead the team.
But her Pulse coach, and current Silver Ferns assistant Yvette McCausland-Durie thinks the defender still has plenty to offer.
"On her return from the Commonwealth Games she's just put her foot down, kept really focused and made a significant difference to this team," McCausland-Durie told 1 NEWS.
"I know she's a strong leader, there's lots of strong leaders within this group. But she continues to add value to our programme and I'm sure she would at the Silver Fern level."
Former Ferns skipper Casey Kopua re-iterated yesterday she is considering making herself available for the national side again.
The Silver Ferns squad for September's Quad Series will be named next Tuesday.
