Quidditch Australia is proud to announce that Logan Davis has been chosen as the Australian head referee delegate to the IQA. Davis is proud to represent Australia at the World Cup in Frankfurt this July, with both an impressive referee and playing career behind him.
Davis currently plays for the ANU Owls, where he made his player debut in early 2015. He refereed his first game at NSW September Triwiz, demonstrating a keen awareness for rules and dedication to fairness, as well as an impeccable command of the pitch. He went on to referee the grand final at the Australian Quidditch championship later that year, where he cemented his position as one of the best referees in the country.
In 2016, Davis has refereed many games on all levels including NSW Triwizards, State of Origin games, and the grand final of the Melbourne Mudbash Tournament. He is excited to be a part of the IQA Team and greatly looks forward to his ability to contribute to the World Cup event.
