The women’s Rugby Seven’s tournament is in full swing at the Olympics with games being played yesterday, today, and will continue into the week. This morning, our US Women’s team played a group game that ended in a tie to Australia, but saw one of the nastiest hits I’ve ever seen.
I should’ve known women’s rugby was going to be intense. But I never expected full speed helmet to helmet torpedo hits like this.
You don’t see hits like that anymore. Not even in the NFL. In college football, they will literally eject you from the game for doing something like this.
That’s an old school, roided up 1970’s NFL type hit. Just no regard for future brain health whatsoever. Time for the concussion protocol.
Here’s a slow-motion replay.
