Sport, like any other activity is subject to the ordinary law of the land; it has no immunity from the application, where appropriate, of the criminal law, the law of obligations, or other rules derived either from statute or from the common law. But the way in which such rules are applied may be affected by the nature of sport itself; most obviously physical contact which might result in criminal or tortious liability in a non sporting context will or may not do so where it occurs during a sporting contest
