ST. CHARLES, Mo. --  A rugby player in St. Louis has become an internet inspiration after a recent match because she didn't let a broken nose didn't stop her from finishing the game.

During the match, Lindenwood University's Georgia Page tackled an opponent during a game in St. Charles Missouri and broke her nose.
But before Page left the game to get checked out, she made two more tackles.

Page later posted a picture of herself getting patched up in the locker room before returning to finish the match.

Since the event, Page has been given the online nickname "war goddess!" and dozens of people have reached out to her on social media to say she's inspiring their daughters to try rugby.
