Georgia Paige is one tough cookie.

Paige plays on the Lindenwood University (Mo.) women’s rugby sevens team and earned the extremely fitting nickname of “War Goddess” after a video of a gutsy play she made recently went viral.

Rugby players are notoriously tough, and the native-Australian wasn’t going let a broken-nose stop her from making two — count ’em… TWO — bone-crunching tackles during a game against Notre Dame.


Despite being forced to momentarily leave the game, Paige wasn’t done. She returned to the field during the second half, intimidating opponents and stealing the hearts of millions in the process.
