On the loosing side, who played again without middle blocker Rodney Ah Kong, Nice’s captain Steven Marshall scored 17 points with 1 ace and 1 winning block, 54% in attack and 62% positive reception. Despite another heavy defeat, Nice earned one point, but the players around coach Rafael Redwitz are still waiting for their first victory.

About the second match of the day, after a misstep against Tours in previous round, newcomers Saint-Nazaire back the winning track by beating Toulouse after a thrilling tie break, and after a hard fought fifth set ended 19-17!
Partially it was 25:23, 24:26, 21:25, 25:22 and 19:17.
With this result, they temporarily back to the top of the current charts, waiting for the other matches of weekend. Portuguese International Laurenco Martins top-scored the winning side with 23 points, 56% in attack and 4 (of his team 15!!!) winning blocks, while Brazilian opposite Daniel Cagliari, In Toulouse’s jersey, ended the
game as top scorer with 27 points, 1 ace and 51% in attack.
