A Quidditch move which was first seen at the 1473 Quidditch World Cup, a match between the national teams of Flanders and Transylvania. (QA10)

  • The move itself is technically legal because no contact is made between the players. (QA10)
  • However, the fake punch to the nose can be extremely disconcerting for an opposing player and almost impossible to execute without contact under match conditions. (QA10)

Notes and interesting facts: the Quidditch World Cup of 1473 was where instances of all 700 fouls were committed in the final match. (QA6)
