Laura Langman's achievement of becoming the first Silver Fern to play 150 Tests wasn't lost on her teammates after this morning's 53-50 loss to Australia.
Langman, 32, last year ended her international exile, returning to the Silver Ferns, before being named captain and this morning notching her 150th game in the black dress.
Speaking to 1 NEWS after the match, vice-captain Casey Kopua spoke highly of Langman's achievement, and stature within New Zealand netball history.
"She's pretty outstanding, and it's so cool to be a part of that with her," Kopua began.
"Just seeing her grow as a person and a player, she's so committed - she'll do anything for her team, and she's one that you'll follow out on court.
"[I'm] in awe of what she has done, and being able to maintain that for herself, just really proud."
Coach Noeline Taurua echoed Kopua's sentiments, crediting Langman's long term influence on her side.
"She's professional, her fitness, her conditioning.
"She always wants to be better both on and off the court and she leads by example."
