Richmond Docklands’ season came to an abrupt end when an unfortunate injury to Julian Marcon forced the forfeit of the play-off quarter final against old rivals Malory Eagles.
With only seven players available due to injuries and holidays, Richmond Docklands were forced into some positional changes. Panos Karagiannis made an assured debut as a setter and Joaquin Bello provided a solid platform from the Libero role. Meanwhile, Marcon switched back to outside hitter to partner captain Andrew Pink. All was going well up until 21-20 and the crowd were being treated to some good quality volleyball. Then disaster struck when Marcon and Pink went for the same ball, colliding in the air.
