J. K. Rowling has added new content, regarding the wizarding world's appreciation of rugby, to the "Goblet of Fire" on Pottermore:

The extensive entry reveals the history behind the worldwide wizarding appreciation of the Scottish rugby team, as well as the magical community’s general derision of Muggle sports like cricket:

                “Unfortunately, cricket found little favour with wizardkind.  As the chief sports writer in the Daily Prophet wrote in 1902: ‘a Beater who is unable to fly defends three sticks instead of a hoop, while a Snitch without wings is thrown at the sticks. That’s it. Sometimes for several days’. Rugby held more appeal. Wizards could not help but admire the strength and courage of Muggles prepared to engage in a sport so brutal, without recourse to Disapparating out of the way, or access to Skele-Gro to repair broken bones. It must be admitted that there was an edge of sadism to some wizards’ enjoyment.”

The story of Angus is very interesting… It could make its own book, really. Love the new info!
