Slytherin Beater 3?

How can there even a Slytherin beater 3? There are only two beaters on each team, and only one one game is played in the film. Are we sure this isn´t a mistake?--Rodolphus (talk) 13:00, May 28, 2016 (UTC)

Almost certainly an error that can be fixed. We already know only 2 beaters exist on a team. --Sajuuk 13:06, May 28, 2016 (UTC)
In looking at the credits for the extended edition, there are credits for "Slyth Beater No 1", "No 2", and "No 3", with the same actors listed here, as well as "Slyth Keeper = David Churchyard" which we don't have listed. From a movie perspective you may have different actors playing a beater for different scenes or even different takes, such as game play vs close up. From an in universe perspective you could have alternates for a position (think Ginny as Seeker) although only 2 specific beaters could play in each match (there are no substitutions during a Quidditch match). --Ironyak1 (talk) 13:18, May 28, 2016 (UTC)
