Taurua's juggling act with Silver Ferns and Lightning

NETBALL: Sunshine Coast coach Noeline Taurua says the Lightning will remain her first priority despite hosting a New Zealand Silver Ferns World Cup camp.

The Silver Ferns arrive on Sunday on the Coast and will be busy at Caloundra Indoor Stadium throughout the week.

The New Zealand coach will also juggle the Lightning's training commitments at the same time as they prepare for a clash with West Coast Fever.

"I'll be working both programs but I'm definitely committed fully to Lightning - it gets first priority,” Taurua said.

Taurua said the same could be said for New Zealand veteran and Lightning midcourter Laura Langman.

"She won't be doing anything physical (with Silver Ferns), once again it sits with Lightning and she'll just be there in person especially in team meetings to help gel the team.”

Taurua said the camp would be a prime chance to build for the Netball World Cup.
