“Great technical level.” And that’s right, because coach Vitucci who saw in Scafati that he was especially battling and able to recover a big gap in points since then had to lay off some athletes, and saw others with some drop in performance and tomorrow’s meeting is indeed the last useful exercise above all, Let’s see at what point we are grasping with technical indicators, and last but not least, also to determine the group’s physical conditions.
Burnell missed the last prep race for the sprain and has been training regularly these days. Dixon is still making mixed preparations, which is why tomorrow’s game should not be, preferring the coach to return for the match in Verona. At palaPentassuglia, these days we have experienced a calm environment. Martina is expecting another multi-point test by Reed, Bowman and Perkins. It is true that we do not play for the colon, but the test is just as important and will be noticed by onlookers.
