FRA M: Laurent Tillie announces list of 21 players, one big name missing


3307 0

The head coach of the French men’s volleyball national team Laurent Tillie has called up 21 players for the international duty.


There is no name of Laurent's son, Kevin, who is currently recovering from shoulder injury. Does it mean that he is not going to play for France in 2017?

It is interesting to see potential Antonin Rouzier’s successors, as he decided to retire at the end of the last season from Team Yavbou jersey.

"This upcoming season is going to be very interesting. We have a difficult World Championship Qualification tournament which is our primary goal. Then, we will go for World League final six. After this tournament, we will try to retain the European Championship trophy," says Tillie for French Volleyball Federation website.

These are 21 players that have been called for the international duty:

Setters: Benjamin Toniutti, Antoine Brizard, Pierre Pujol, Meliuahel Takaniko

Opposites: Jean Patry, Stephen Boyer, Timothee Carle

Receivers: Earvin Ngapeth, Trevor Clevenot, Julien Lyneel, Guillaume Quesque, Thibault Rossard, YAcine Louati

Middle blockers: Kevin Le Roux, Nicolas Le Goff, Jonas Aguenier, Horacio D’Almeida, Daryl Bultor, Barthelemy Chinenyeze

Liberos: Jenia Grebennikov, Nicolas Rossard

FIVB are testing new rules at WCH U23: Serve (VIDEO)

I honestly don't see the use of changing every time the rules. People at some point don't know anymore what the exact rules are, and at this time I'm talking about player, coaches, ... , people with much affection for the sport. People that don't know the sport, can't follow at all this evolution of rules. In consequence they lose interest in the sport and stop following it.

Also if this rule would apply, this will for many youth teams an issue to learn this kind of services, as they don't have the room behind the court as the professional player to learn this kind of service without landing in the court. I know courts where there's only 1 meter behind the service lines.

If we want the game to become more spectacular again, we should simply raise the hight of the net. People are becomming taller and taller and jumping higher and higher, the logical evolution would be to raise the net hight.

IT will impact the service presure and the attack presure, resulting in longer rally's.

Thanks just my personal opinion.

I wonder who has the same idea? Reply
