Bartosz Kurek (POL) superiorly leads among Receivers 2 after four days of voting. How important player he is shows the fact that despite Poland becaming the World champion in 2014 without him, his playing for the national team is still necessary. Thus, head coach of Poland, Stéphane Antiga considers calling him for the obligations of NT in 2015 although these two had misunderstandings. Kurek is second best scorer in his team Cucine Lube Banca Marche Treia this season and has good chances to win title in Italy. Besides Mariusz Wlazły, Kurek is the most popular Polish player among fans in that country. Kurek’s stats.

Osmany Juantorena (ITA) follows Kurek in votes. Whenever comes the end of the season, the Cuban with Italian passport is the star of a transfer market. It doesn’t matter if he’s first, second or even third best scorer in his team, Turkish Halkbank, because all important balls go to him. He is legend of world volleyball famous by his incredible jump and good timing during spike. You can’t block him, the most you can get is block out. Juantorena’s stats.

Ricardo Lucarelli (BRA) leads the young forces of Brazilian volleyball. His team Sesi-SP started the season in a slow rhythm but round by round, mostly thanks to Lucarelli’s stunning performances, it reached playoff finals. Almost all strongest clubs in Europe want him for the next season and by the unofficial information, he signed for Lube! Lucarelli is the second best attacker in Brazilian Super League and third best scorer with an amazing jump and possibility to change the angle of a spike in the last moment. Lucarelli’s stats.

Taylor Sander (USA). He came this season in Italian Calzedonia Verona with the question of all volleyball fans – Who’s this guy? No wonder nobody heard about him, since this is Sander’s first season as a professional. He arrived in Italy directly from college but ended regular phase of Serie A1 as seventh best scorer and will lead Verona in playoffs. Sander’s stats.

Robert Kromm (GER). His huge advantage is his height which is unusual for a receiver and it’s so difficult to block him. Moreover, he is amazing from the service line. Kromm won the bronze medal with Berlin Recycling Volleys at the Champions League Final Four. Kromm’s stats.
