Silver Ferns to 'stay in touch' during domestic season to keep developing winning culture as World Cup looms

The Silver Ferns may be going their separate ways following their Quad Series campaign but plans are already in place to keep the team culture they're formed, from fading.

The team touched down in New Zealand this morning after playing in London last week where they picked up one win in three matches.

The Silver Ferns claimed an overtime 62-60 win over South Africa in their final match in London on Monday morning having lost to England 54-41 and Australia 53-50 earlier in the tournament.

But players are now heading to their respective domestic teams both in New Zealand and Australia with the ANZ Premiership and Super Netball seasons about to get underway.

Captain Laura Langman told 1 NEWS the distance won't stop the team from thinking about July's World Cup.

"It is a challenge but it's a reality for any team that's coming together for the World Cup," Langman said.

"What is great is we've all talked about it and we've come up with strategies on what we can do to stay in touch.

"It'll ensure that even though we've got our domestic hats on, we're stoking the Silver Ferns engine at the same time."

The ANZ Premiership begins on February 24 while Super Netball in Australia doesn't start until April 27.

Langman and veteran shooter Maria Folau are the only members in the current Silver Ferns squad competing in Australia with the remainder based in the New Zealand competition.
