Read on below.

Name: Laura Langman

Position: C WD

Started playing when: 6 years old in NZ

Best food for fuel: Cereal and yoghurt! 

Pre-game ritual: Ninja nap, power hit in the gym, coffee

Training tip: Be as strong as you are big.  Train the way you want to play

Most memorable career momentAny grand final I have played in.  The pressure and atmosphere are surreal!

What do you do in your down-time: Snowboarding, Pilates, triathlons, movies, coffee and food with friends

Advice to young players interested in getting into the game: It is not what we do, it is how we react that is the true measure of character and heart!

Favourite quote: Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all the time thing. You don't win occasionally... you don't do things right occasionally... you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit.
