Georgia Page plays women's rugby for Lindenwood University in Missouri. However, after this weekend she is now known as the "Rugby War Goddess."
The Australian was playing in a match on Thursday when she broke her nose in the first tackle of the game.
However, Page was undeterred and kept playing. She even made another tackle before she was taken off. "I just got up and started playing again," she said.
USA Sevens Rugby shared a video of Page with blood pouring down her face, and dubbed her the "Rugby War Goddess." The video soon blew up online.
Since then, Page has been called everything from the "Rugby Hottie" to a "chick" who is "way hotter than you think." Of course, she has also been turned into a meme.
The experience has been completely insane, according to Page.
However, Page said she is happy that all of the media attention is shining a spotlight onto her sport. "I love how it does show what rugby is really about," she said.
Page said that it upsets her to see how little coverage women's rugby gets by sports networks, saying that NBC Sports only played their game in the background of another segment. "It's kind of sad," she said.
Page hopes the coverage she has received shines a light on women's rugby, and hopefully gets more people interested in watching and playing the sport. "I hope that it's a good promoter for women's rugby," she said.
Page added that she wants girls to know, they are all tough enough to play rugby too. "I hope that it does empower girls to want to play rugby," she said.
