Row about a rug with energy (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

argue

Here is my best explanation:

'row' is the definition.

(I've seen this before)

'about a rug with energy' is the subsidiary indication.

'about' indicates anagramming the letters.

'with' says to put letters next to each other.

'energy' becomes 'e' (physics symbol as in E=mc2).

'a'+'rug'='arug'

'arug' anagrammed gives 'argu'.

'argu'+'e'='argue'

This clue was last seen in Mirror

(Other definitions for argue that I've seen before include "Quarrel or disagree", "Contend, maintain", "Make a case", "Fabric hanging in folds", "Have a difference of opinion", "Squabble", "Disagree heatedly", "Contest verbally, dispute", "Debate, contest verbally" and "Have words (with)".)
