Jastrzębski Węgiel swept the series of the 2020/21 Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff semifinals against VERVA Warszawa ORLEN Paliwa.


The 6th-seed VERVA Warszawa ORLEN Paliwa was the most pleasant surprise in the playoffs of the 2020/21 Polish Men’s PlusLiga but their journey ended in the semifinals. Regular season vice-champions Jastrzębski Węgiel were the ones to do that, beating the club from the country’s capital by a 3-1 (27-29, 29-27, 25-20, 26-24) in Game 2 of the series (2-0) and advancing to their first championship face-off in 11 years.

Jakub Bucki highlighted the ‘Hawks’ with 21 points, while Frenchman Yacine Louati made 74 % reception (19 digs, 58 % perfect).

The 4th-seed PGE Skra Bełchatów played on all or nothing in Game 2 against titleholders and top-seed Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle and it paid them off. The 9-time champions prevailed in 4 sets and tied the series at 1-1. Serbian Dušan Petković top-scored Skra with 22 points (4 aces).

ITA M: Perugia focused on bringing Grbić

He signed a 2-years contract with Zaksa last year. He won Polish Cup with them, not sure what happened so Zaksa lost the championship. They kicked out Lube and Zenit from the Champions League and have a good chance of becoming European champion although Trentino didn't win anything this year so this is their last chance.
He started his coaching career with Perugia so everything is possible... Reply

Unfortunately there is no future for Russell. He is old and after this operation, he cannot recover and remain the same level before :( Reply

USA M: Russell undergoes surgery in US, will miss Tokyo Olympics

Russell had one of the best sports surgeons in the world work on him so I expect he will be in great hands. While devastating for any athlete Russell is young enough to have both Paris and Los Angeles in his Olympic future at very high level.
Piacenza is building something very special there and Russell is a perfect type of player and professional to attract others to come there and build around.
Wishing him a full and speedy recovery. Reply
