The English National Quidditch team

The Rowntree Counter is a tactic in the wizarding game of Quidditch and the signature move of the English National Quidditch team.


The move involves all three Chasers and, if done correctly, secures ten points for the team. All Chasers dive simultaneously and a flag of blue, white and red, the Union Jack, flows out of their brooms. This distracts the opposite team and knocks two of them off their brooms. In the confusion, the Chasers pass the Quaffle to each other, until finally one of them does an overhead kick and scores. In this way, many of the moves resemble those in football.
