The (One-Arm) Wrap – NQL Round 2 Division 1

The second competitive round of NQL saw most teams play against the last of their divisional opponents, giving us a very good idea of where each team stands. QA Today asked some of our readers to talk about some of the games they participated in – as players, referees, or even just spectating – to give the rest of the community a glimpse of just how close the competition is in each Division. Here are some of the games in Division One, you can read all about Division Two here.

The Macarthur Weasleys beat us to the punch and have already published an article about their games for the day, which you can find here. read more

For Div 1, I’d say at the Serpents are the best at the moment. After all, they are a team comprised of top level, committed players, who take the sport seriously and train accordingly, all seemingly well versed in quidditch strategy and passionate about it. Their strict recruitment is understandable when you want to play in a team where all the players take the sport seriously. I hope they are paving the way for more competitive, high level community teams to rise, but right now they have that edge on all other teams. I think there’s a clear distinction in Div 1 between the top four (Serpents, Unspeakables, WSQC and ANU) and Newcastle and Macquarie. read more
