The Women’s Rugby World Cup is taking place in France right now. During a match between England and Samoa, Soteria Pulumu picked up England’s Natasha Hunt and basically suplexed her. Pulumu’s incredibly violent – and dirty- take down earned her a 5-week ban from the sport. Originally, she was given 9-weeks, but the ban was reduced because she didn’t have a history of violence. (Besides playing rugby, which is not against the rules of rugby.)

In other Women’s Rugby World Cup news, South African captain Mandisa Williams was given a 16-week ban for eye-gouging.
