• Ankle injury


    Indeed. I think she is still recovering from her ankle-injury..or at least not ready yet for a match.


    The same for Robin de Kruijf, after her knee-sugery.


    Bongaerts arrived earlier than Stoltenborg at NT Camp, so that could be the reason why Femke is not in the roster.


    I hope to see Polder and Lohuis on court :win:

  • Why Kim Renkema had not any chance to show herself? And what about Meijners?


    Renkema retired as a player, she is now manager in Stuttgart.


    Meijners retired from NT in 2007...at the age of 20...

  • If I correctly understand (translate) the article in the Dutch press, Robin will not participate in VNL, she’ll recovery for the World Championship


    Could you give the link to the article :win:


    Edit: I found it. It is on the federation's website. Your statement about Robin de Kruijf is correct, she will focus on WCH. Daalderop will be part of the roster again in 2nd week (in Japan).

  • Polder reminds me a lot of De Kruijf in terms of playing style, and I think at the age of 20 she's even better than Robin was when she was 20, so I hope she can grow a lot and show her potential also in NT this summer.

    In my opinion she is a little bit more a player like Beliën :D she is a good server and she is better in blocking than attacking. I'm very curious where she will sign for upcoming season..


    But, since Lohuis is also more a Beliën-type, I guess Morisson will try Polder at Robin's position.


    Of course, it is hard to find a MB attacking like Robin...there are only a few worldwide...



    Intersting battle will be between Daalderop and Buijs.

  • Actually I think Polder has been attacking quite well this season in Aachen, both in front of and behind the setter. Surely not even close to Robin's level yet, but again, she's a much better attacker now than Belien was with 20 :D


    Lohuis is one of those players who tend to go unnoticed, she plays very unspectacular but always gets her job done fairly well.
