Saint Raphael are the French national Cup winners for the season 2018/2019

 

Saint Raphael Var VB claimed on Sunday their first French Cup title in history after edging Nantes 3-1 to cap the Final Four tournament held in Mulhouse.

Definitely, it was a weekend filled with surprises! The day after their victory against the current leaders of the national league, Asptt Mulhouse in the semi-finals (3-1), Nantes VB lost the grand finale of the tournament 1-3 to Saint Raphael Var VB, who had previously eliminated SF PARIS Saint-Cloud (3-1).

The team from the French Riviera seized the first national cup title in their history – three years after becoming France’s national champions.

The final of the women’s French Cup:

Saint Raphael – Nantes 3-1 (20-25, 25-22, 27-25, 25-10)

WC 2019 W: Netherlands surprisingly sweep Brazil on Balkestein’s birthday, China wreck Russia

I don't like the comment that Balkestein-Grothues underperformed! We all know she is there to receive and defend. As you said: 0 aces for Brazil, so she did a great job! Aswell did Schoot, who was almost perfect in receive and defence! Reply

WC 2019 W: Brazil beat weakened team of Serbia in thriller, China win Asian derby

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(
