New Zealand midcourter Laura Langman will have one thing on her mind if she's got the ball in her hands and the hooter is about to sound in the inaugural Fast5 netball world series.


She'll try to sink a three-point bomb.


"I'm not going to lie," she says.


"If there's three seconds to go, I'm going to have a go."


Langman will skipper the Fast5 Ferns in the three-day world series, which begins in Auckland on Friday and also involves Australia, England, South Africa, Jamaica and Malawi.


Fast5 has developed from Fastnet, which had an annual world tournament for the past three years, New Zealand winning the first two times and finishing runners-up to hosts England last year.

The new form of the shortened game, played over four six-minute quarters, features a reduction in the number on court to five-a-side.


There is also a new three-point goal scored from outside the shooting circle, with the three doubling to six if landed during a team's nominated power-play quarter.


As a midcourter, Langman has no chance to put up shots during a normal game of netball, although the experienced Test player does try her hand at it during Silver Ferns practice.


"The girls usually have a go before we start training sessions," she says.


"I wouldn't say religiously, but the odd shot has been put up."


Langman has taken over the captaincy of the Fast5 Ferns after defender Casey Williams was withdrawn so she can continue rehabilitation on the left knee that has sidelined her for much of this year.


While Williams was disappointed at not being involved, Langman said it was important to look the bigger picture and the more important tournaments down the track.
