RUS M: Sergey Shlyapnikov has announced the roster of Russia... Where is Poletaev?

2589 1

The new head coach of Russia decided to call 21 players...


 

Sergey Shlyapnikov has announced the names of the players on which he will count for the 2017 World League tournament. As you can see below, there are no some well-known names such are Dmitriy Musersky, Maxim Mikhailov, Alexander Butko, Artem Volvich...

Still the biggest surprise is that there is no Viktor Poletaev on the list. One of the best young players in Europe was the top scorer of the 2016/17 Russian Championship Regular Season, still at the end of the season he suffered injury due to which he missed the start of the Playoffs.

Perhaps the injury is the reason Shlyapnikov decided not to call Poletaev...  

This is the roster of Russia:

Setters: Sergey Antipkin (Dinamo Moscow), Pavel Pankov (Kuzbass Kemerovo), Dmitry Kovalev (Ural Ufa)

Opposites: Konstantin Bakun (Dinamo Moscow), Maxim Zhigalov (Belogorie Belgorod), Alexander Chefranov (Gazprom Yugra), Alexander Kimerov (Fakel)

Outside-Hitters: Alexey Spiridonov (Enisey Krasnoyarsk), Egor Kliuka, Dmitry Volkov (Fakel), Dmitriy Ilinykh, Denis Biryukov (Dinamo Moscow), Egor Feoktistov (Ural Ufa)

Middle Blockers: Ilyas Kurkaev (Lokomotiv Novosibirsk), Vadim Likhosherstov Ilya Vlasov (Fakel), Dmitry Shcherbinin, Igor Filippov (Dinamo Moscow)

Libero: Valentin Krotkov (Zenit Kazan), Artem Zelenkov (Dinamo-LO), Roman Martynyuk (Belogorye Belgorod).

WoV making list of suggestions on how to make volleyball rules clearer for the fans – Give us a hand!

1. Let coach go inside the court during period of no play ALWAYS
2. Let players speek freely with referee
3. Put fans closer to the court
4. Let teams' coaches discuss more close one to another
5. Make players warm up any place behind bench
6. Make space outside of 9x9 court smaller so players go often to save the ball into the fans
7. Change LED ads positions. Looks like players are untouchable...

Re: @Freeman that same problem counts for ball in/out, foot over/on the line and ball-touches. The problem is not the rule, it is the availability and the costprice of the technology to organize a challenge-system. Normally, as technology progresses, the challenge-system will become cheaper over time and more competitions on more levels will be able to afford it.
