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.
