Dave also has a call with Estonian Outside Hitter Robert Taht, who was selected as one of the EuroVolley Ambassadors with his country hosting Pool D.  Don’t worry Estonian fans, this was recorded a while back so any references to recovering from surgery are long out of date.  They talk through the excitement of EuroVolley coming to town, why he wants to do his talking on the court and Dave has a go at some of the local lingo.
