1938: Wrestling Water ….Polo in USA

Article of the US magazine PIC of April 1938 presenting the Sport. “The defence is being blocked off as the ball-carrier fights his way through the goalie to touch the ball against the goal. The defenseman’s job is to drag him under and either yank the ball from him or apply torture holds until he releases it. When the ball floats clear, the players must stop playing rough".
