TUG OF WAR

Tug of war (also known as tug o' wartug warrope warrope pulling, or tugging war) is a sport that directly pits two teams against each other in a test of strength.

The Oxford English Dictionary says that the phrase "tug of war" originally meant "the decisive contest; the real struggle or tussle; a severe contest for supremacy". Only in the 19th century was it used as a term for an athletic contest between two teams who haul at the opposite ends of a rope.
