Men’s AVL – Round 2

Posted by devo on October 26, 2009

Round 2 of the Men’s Australian Volleyball League begins in Canberra this coming Friday night with the first of 2 matches beginning at 6pm, when the AIS will take on the Pirates. The draw for this round has been modified to fit in the replay of Pirates vs UTSSU from round 1. The scheduled AIS vs Heat match will now be played at a “date to be confirmed”.

Let’s hope this round is free from controversy, and the focus can be on the volleyball.

With the NOAS Improving Officiating forum being held at the Australian Institute of Sport on Saturday, let’s hope there are enough refs available to do the job, without the load falling again onto just a few.

Our poll for this week is: Will the UTSSU team be able to record its first win this week? See the poll in the left hand column.

The ladder after round 1 – less the replay match is:

TEAM P W L
QAS Pirates 3 3 0
Canberra Heat 3 2 1
University Blues 3 2 1
AIS 3 1 2
Volleyball WA 3 1 2
UTSSU 3 0 3

MAVL – rematch

Posted by devo on October 19, 2009

AVLlogoThe Men’s Australian Volleyball League started out with some controversy last weekend. When the teams came to award the MVP votes, a player from Pirates was not on the list. UTSSU protested. Pirates protested.

Volleyball Australia’s Joan Perry says, “There were several technical irregularities all around; it just seemed that the only fair thing to do was to have a rematch.”

Everyone has had a fair say on the Men’s AVL – round 1 post. It was a difficult round with refs stretched over 3 events. I think we’ll let the teams do the talking in Canberra in 2 weeks time. I’ve closed down discussion on this topic.
