Salary information is wrong. The drafted female players for 2018/2019 season will be paid 150,000 USD including tax while male players will be paid 300,000 USD excluding tax+ alpha. Korean star KYK complained of this discriminatory regulation.

Except Tomsia and Piertersen, those aren't really 'famous' players

Re: @denz lidang
These are the players who are going to be tested in the tryout and 6 out of the 34 players will go through the tryout and get a draft.

ITALIAN CUP M: Verona and Piacenza disappoint once again

Piacenza will not have a good year with Hierrezuelo setting. He arrived unprepared and cannot set the front pin hitters and bic at all. Cleverly and Russell have no idea where those sets are going to be. The libero Scanferla is young and the staff is asking him to pass too much of the court.
Gardini is not leading this team in the right direction. Look for another setter quickly. Heck try Shaw there at this point.
Talent is wasting here.
