Radom is streaming its match vs. RC Cannes right now on youtube:
French OPP Maëva Orlé to UVT Agroland Timisoara in the Romanian league.
Grand Prix Brno: Semifinals were played today evening
Hosts KP Brno (CZE) - Vasas Budapest (HUN) 0:3
Erfurt (GER) - Neuchâtel (SUI) 0:3
I watched part of the 2nd match: Erfurt without setter Sagardia and didn't use Noora Kosonen as far as i could see, Neuchâtel mostly with its best line-up, i think.
Tomorrow: for 3rd place: https://www.tvcom.cz/Zapas/Spo…nd-Prix-Brno-o-3misto.htm
If anyone is interested.
not sure how accurate WOV is, but here's Canada's rooster:
Canadian roster for Japan:
1 Jessie Niles
2 Autumn Bailey
4 Kyla Richey (team captain)
5 Danielle Smith
7 Brianna Beamish
8 Alicia Ogoms
9 Alexa Gray
11 Anna Feore
12 Jennifer Cross
16 Shainah Joseph,
19 Marie-Alex Belanger
22 Megan Cyr
23 Emily Maglio
25 Kiera Van Ryk
Looks to be copied from Volley Canada's official release, so i guess it's correct. As far as i know Van Ryk (UBC) and Feore (Toronto) are the 2 players still enrolled as student-athletes in Canada.
Mulhouse won the traditional tournament in Frasnes with Asterix, Paris, Gent, Salo and Sliedrecht.
They both have played in Italy and done super well, Heyrman has been among the top blockers in Italy....I`m honestly surprised she did not sign with a big cub in Italy or Turkey, she can block and attack.
Maybe because she's coming back from knee surgery and here she said that apparently all places in Italy were already full:
It doesn't explain the magnitude of the late swiss breakdown, but it was written that Laura Künzler (their most important player) had to leave the court with pain in the ellbow (get well soon!). And without Laura Unternährer in the team (who apparently is focusing on club volleyball), there's nobody (yet) who could play that role like her, i guess.
According to manager Jakub Dolata, another polish player will play in Italy (probably from Trefl Proxima Kraków)
I think, it will be Justyna Łukasik (MB) or Anna Miros (Podolec)
Seems to be Ewelina (Sieczka) Brzezinska in Sigel Marsala (A2): http://www.marsalavolley.com/u…-la-sigel-marsala-volley/
Next season in Bundesliga (Ladies in black Aachen), last year in Swiss league (Sm’Aesch Pfeffingen).
If Aachen's American OPP Agost is really THAT good as some here wrote, it might be hard for her. Hopefully more playing time than Elena Steinemann had in Wiesbaden though. Go Maja!
I'm sure that Kim Robitaille are on the VBL Site for Suhl. But now she isn't.
US setter Taylor Bruns seems to be with Suhl (spotted her on a pic from a team event (cooking) they've posted on facebook). Whatever that means... I don't know.
So Finland, France, Portugal, Greece, Belgium and Croatia are already qualified to ECH19. Tomorrow Switzerland could join them if they win Albania.
Even if, i thought Austria could still overtake Switzerland with the set-ratio criteria at the end.
OPP Nikoleta Perovic (Stuttgart) to Hungarian champion Békéscsabai.
Hope the Slovenian libero Pahor is ok again. She was laying there for a while like a knocked-out boxer after that hard ball to her head.
Glad i was wrong with AUT vs. SUI
I assume Austria has the edge over Switzerland. Seems to me Austria played clearly more preparation matches this summer (in the near Maribor training centre also against NCAA teams on their overseas summer trips) and has more settled line-up right now. We will see...
I don't see Sweden beat Finland (even without Piia Korhonen). The Finns have become quite a solid team lately, no stars but pretty decent on most/all positions. Sweden might have a few widely-known names but has also more weak spots/positions which can be exploited IMO. But i can be wrong.
Former Schwerin player Lousi Souza Ziegler from Romania (CSM Targoviste) to UTE in Hungary.
