Notes and interesting facts:

  • All wizards support Scotland's team in rugby, whatever country they are from (Pm).
  • Talking about Scottish rugby or Angus Buchanan is a coded way for wizards to identify other wizards when mixing with Muggles (Pm).
  • Ron Weasley "rugby-tackled" Mundungus Fletcher when he tried to get away (DH11).
