A female rugby player dubbed “the rugby war goddess” online soldiered on through the pain barrier after breaking her nose on the pitch.

Australian Georgia Page who was playing for the US university team Lindenwood against Notre Dame went on to make two further crunching tackles after the break.

The rugby player later commented on social media that although her face was “looking better” she still “literally cant [sic] breathe out my nose”.

Her actions helped her team avert a Notre Dame try and her teammates seemed suitably impressed by her actions, although Ms Page noted she was “just doing what every team mate would do!”
