Rugby as a model for society

"The rugby team requires 15 men, of whom eight should be strong and active, two should be nimble and quick-witted, four should be tall, graceful and swift, and the last one should be a model of calm and coolness under pressure: This is also the ideal ratio for society."
-- Jean Giraudoux, "Le Sport," 1928
