Twickenham welcomes a new set of boots to the pitch - as Top Gear stars tackle a game of rugby on wheels.

James May and Jeremy Clarkson captain a team each as they take to the field for a few crash tackles in this Sunday's edition of the show.

The team have previously adapted other sports for drivers, including playing car football and sending a Mini down a ski jump.

They headed out on to the hallowed turf of Twickenham - the home of England rugby - to test out a new model of the Kia C'eed, the vehicle normally used by the "star in a reasonably priced car".

The players used a huge outsize rugby ball as they played their unusual match, which can be seen on BBC2 on Sunday at 8pm.

Don't be surprised if you're given a chance to showcase your work in a magazine, boutique or gallery. Fame and acclaim can be yours, so long as you're willing to follow your instincts.More
