    Great win guys against a good Volleyball nation. I wouldn’t expect that we would have beaten them too often, ever. It sounds like the guys had a great tour.

    Good to see Tutts playing well (go SA). I notice that he passed at an incredible 3.00 in one match.

    By the way, who is Zingel? He seems to be playing pretty well. Is he a Middle?

      Aidan Zingel, 18yo Pass Hitter from Woolongong. New addition to the team this year and from the reports, he’s had a great year!

        oops yes he’s a middle blocker.

          He is from Kiama, NSW.

          And he can also Pass-Hit if required. Or opposite. Haven’t seen him Libero yet…………………..

            The AIS profile is lying to me ;)

            I have photos of him pass hitting at last years Junior Nationals, thats why i got confused.

              He was playing middle at Nationals they just left him on in back court

                The almalgamated union of Liberos will be on to that!

                Coach Appleby was using him as a back row attack option, rather than for defensive specialty. The Old if stuck, set the AIS guy. Worked well for us a few years ago with Paul Carroll.
