France became one of the four teams that finished Week 1 of the 2018 FIVB Men’s Volleyball Nations League with a perfect record.


After USA, Italy, and Poland (beat Canada by a 3-1 in Pool 3), France became the fourth team to end Week 1 of the 2018 FIVB Volleyball Nations League with a 3-0 record.

At home in Rouen, in Pool 1, the „Team Yavbou“ scored the easiest win in the tournament so far, a 3-0 against Australia, partially 25-17, 25-20, 36-34.  France imposed dominance with a furious start in the opening set, 9-1! Australia had the only real opportunity of winning a set in the third one during which Kévin Tillie had to leave the court due to a pain in his left knee.  

Stéphen Boyer was the best scorer for France with 18 points. Lincoln Williams notched 10 points for „Volleyroos“.

Japan beat Iran beat in the same pool by a 3-1 while Russia defeated South Korea in straight sets in Pool 3.

#1 This is going to be a tremendous year for the Italian League. Every team has made moves to improve throughout the league.
#2 The top 4 are so close that it would not be wise to bet money.
#3 Depth and Roster managment may be the determining factor this year. It that happens , Lube and Perugia are in trouble with so much $ invested in such a few.
#4 I think the Super Coppa was a predictor to the Finals of the Scudetto. Modena and Trentino will upend Lube and Perugia. Reply
