Some people think rugby is mad enough - all those big boys slamming the hell out of each other. But it could be worse... Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond have decided rugby can be played in cars.

The latest season of the world's most widely watched factual TV programme is due to return and a trailer release shows the trio finding some ridiculous ways to push their test cars to the limit.

According to the Daily Mail, one such stunt will be to tear up the home of English rugby - Twickenham - to play a motor vehicle game of rugby with a giant ball, complete with a police vehicle as the referee.

How did that go? Not well, it would seem, from the images released on the show's teaser.

In series six, the hosts and an extended team of drivers famously tested the handling of the Toyota Aygo on the football pitch, playing a game of football.

Other stunts sure to get some laughs include trying to keep a Volvo 850R Estate on a wooden raft afloat on the Nile river, and heading across the US from the Nevada desert to the Mexican border in luxury high performance cars.

Controversial host Clarkson is also set to build a car smaller than the world's smallest Peel P50, and pitch it on the UK version of Dragon's Den.

While the premiere of season 19 airs tonight in the UK, New Zealand will see the first episode on Sunday February 3, at 7.30pm on Prime.
