Quidditch World Cup 2014 Quarter-finals Match 1

Welsh team manager Gwenog Jones exacted her revenge on Brazil’s manager José Barboza in full view of a packed crowd of spectators after her team lost their quarter-final match to Brazil by 460 points to 300 (QWC).

The two managers have been feuding since Barboza had called her Chasers “talentless hags”, a joke which he says was taken out of context by journalist Rita Skeeter. Healers were able to restore Barboza’s face before the semi-finals (QWC).

Notes

Gwenog Jones was prevented from coming into the stadium wearing a 'IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN HAITI' t-shirt. Regulations about "manager trash talk" had been specially introduced for this Quidditch World Cup with Gwenog in mind (QWC).
