1336 0

These are the highlights of the third round of the winners’ stage in the Japanese V-League.

 

Thomas Edgar led his team JT Thunders to the win over Suntory Sunbirds. The Australian giant was better than Dmitry Muserskiy on the other side. He scored 34, while the Russian player had 25.

Toray Arrows, led by Antonin Rouzier, defeated the reigning champions Panasonic Panthers in four sets. The French international scored 27 points, while the Polish outside hitter had 24.

The race for the first three places got complicated right now. Each team has a chance to reach one of the first three places…

Panasonic Panthers – Toray Arrows 1-3 (31-33, 24-26, 25-21, 20-25)

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... :-(
