Vargas exclusively for WoV: “I have no desire to change my federation of origin“

Re: @George
This season, she sometimes receives the serve in Turkish league. I guess instead of Boskovic, Terzic wants her to replace Mihajlovic. Reply

ITA M: Piacenza stun Milano on road

So this was a dominant and impressive road win for Piacenza. Baranowicz is getting a better connection to the outside and smartly is forcing more middle action.
I have really been impressed with the growth of Scanferia. He and Clevernot are passing much better. With the addition of Mousavi and Russell and Grozer playing at such a high level, Gas Sales is going to make a serious move in the 2nd half of the season.
As far as the league, Trentino has been a major dissapointment, Modena under Christenson leadership has been terrific, Monza remains dangerous, and overall the league is very competitive and fun.
Lube and Perugia may not be there at the end.
The league needs to find a way to increase its exposure worldwide, imo Reply
