Many of the modern (and more difficult) Quidditch moves are discussed.
Interesting facts and notes
Much of the Lexicon's information on the names of specific Quidditch moves came from this chapter.
Sloth Grip Roll
So named because a player executing this manoeuvre is in the same posture as a sloth hanging from a tree branch.
Wronski Defensive Feint
We have seen this dangerous Seeker move three times. The first was at the final of the 1994 Quidditch World Cup. Viktor Krum of Bulgaria's high speed Wronski Feint fools the Irish Seeker Aidan Lynch into thinking that Krum has seen the Snitch. Lynch requires medical help after he crashes into the pitch (GF8).
Plumpton Pass.... seemingly careless swerve that scoops the Snitch up one's sleeve.... Although some critics have alleged that this was an accident, Plumpton maintained until his death that he had meant to do it.
The Starfish Without Stick should never be attempted.
