Croatia 2017 NT

  • crovolley and all others


    Position in NT doesn't depend on quality or form but only on personal relations/managers etc. I don't want to say anything more :whistle:



    Everything is told here. We don't even need to talk about our roster, because this is roster of Aksentijevic's, Lovrinov's and others favourite girls, not roster of Croatia NT.

  • Croatia will play friendly matches against Slovenia, Czech Rep and Italy before QT for WCH, for now.


    I'm curious which Croatian players will be the main ones this year.

    My favourite roster of Chinese
    male NT:
    S - Li Run-ming, Zhan Guo-jun
    OP - Dai Qing-yao, Jiang Chuan
    OH - Ji Dao-shuai, Xia Run-tao, Liu Li-bin, Zhang Chen
    MB - Zhang Zhe-jia, Chen Long-hai, Geng Xin
    L - Ren Qi


    female NT:
    S - Ding Xia, Yao Di
    OP - Gong Xiang-yu, Zhang Chang-ning
    OH - Hui Ruo-qi, Zhu Ting, Liu Xiao-tong, Li Jing
    MB - Yuan Xin-yue, Yan Ni, Xu Yun-li
    L - Lin Li

    A rare interview with one of the all time greats - Barbara Ružić (Jelić) for Serbian magazine "Odbojka".
    Unfortunately, she's totally out of the loop with today's volleyball and only watches it very occasionally. She has however noticed that there are not a lot of players who can "make a hole in the floor" like for example Mireya Luis and Artamonova could back in her day. :D

  • Team for WCH qualification will probably be:



    S: Grbac, Perić, Ćurak
    L: Sain, Božičević
    MB: Poljak, Prokopić (Miloš), Strunjak, Butigan
    OPP: Fabris, Barun-Šušnjar, Luketić
    OH: Mlinar, Klarić, Cvetnić, Pavičić, Runjić

  • The biggest question about our NT is position OH.


    Mia Jerkov and Mira Topic are not playing so our reception will be very weak. I just don't like Klaric I hope Aksentijevic will try with other OHs like Lea Cvetnic who has weak reception but She is good attcker... and I'm sad that He didn't try with Dinka Kulic. All OHs are so young I think we will have problem :whistle:

  • Who will be the starter opp? Barun or Fabris? In a team with such a dominant Opp and MB duos, there should be a receiver OH. That's why the absence of Jerkov might even help to the team since her reception was weakness, on the other hand, Mira Topiç will be missed. :whistle:

  • Absolutely, we don't need good attackers, but good receivers on OH. Most of our young OH's are good attackers but weak receivers, except Kulic and Volmut. Both of them rejected calls because of injuries so we now have these OH's. I except that will Fabris play like OH, that will be best solution.

  • Senna Usic is in Shanghai now and watching the match of Shanghai against Beijing in the qualification of 13th Chinese National Games?

    plus one question: Does she want to return Team Shanghai? [She was the member of Team Shanghai in Season 14/15 and Season 15/16]

    Edited once, last by tomen ().

  • Afterall Maja Poljak will play with Croatia NT at QT in Croatia, but plan is for now that She will play only against Russia.
    Katarina Barun is with NT too. :)


    If I'm right Klara Peric is not with NT, I don't know if that is because of injuri or what. For sure Ćurak is not better than her She is disaster setter...but what happend then ?(

  • It looks like Samanta was only joking with Maja that She will play against Russia. :S
    So we will wait for official news.


    I feel Maja has agreed to participate (in the whole five matches). :)
