If you want to see a gruelling, hard man's team sport then look no further than bowls.

Lawn bowls, that is. Players have been known to misplace their zimmer frames during particularly tough matches. This never stops the fight. These players are made of sterner stuff! They just resort to continue in wheelchairs.
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton
