Homesickness adds to the challenge for Langman

Ko te ra i mua i te tauwhainga whakaharahara mo te kapa Swifts i tēnei tau, me te whakapono a Laura Langman, koinei te tukinga e titi kaha nei ki tōna whatumanawa i roto i te ANZ Championships.

Ko tā Laura Langman, “I've got very very fond memories of my time with Magic and I think to be fair I think is quite a fitting final to be played in Hamilton considering Swifts and Magic were in the very first final of the ANZ Championship.” 

Engari he whakamatautau anō tēnei mō te kapa whai muri i tā rātou hinganha i a Queensland Firebirds mā te tekau mā ono māka i tēra wiki. Nōreira e ai ki a Langman, he mahere rautaki hou tā rātou.

Hei tā Langman, “From where we are and where we need to be is a very short shift and i think the girls have taken it quite well. So we're looking forward to hitting the ground and running in Hamilton.”

I tāna wehenga ake i te kainga, ko te wero nui mō te toki o te kapa rarauhe Hiriwa, ko te mahue ake i tōna hoa tāne i a Adrian Pooley, kia takahi ai ia i tāna huarahi ki Ahitereria.

Ko tā Langman, “Adrien and I have been lucky enough to see each other once a month, so I just asked them then that I was booking my flight because he wanted me to come back, so I said "yes", so that was good.”

“It's been a great experience and what I wanted, so I'm still nervous knowing that this is the finals. So it has definitely lived up to and well beyond the expectations that I ever thought it could be,” hei tā Langman.
