VIDEO: 8 game ban for this Russian 7s player’s reckless use of the boot

If you were being sympathetic here you could argue the Russian player is just kicking out of the tackle. If you weren’t in a sympathetic mood you might be lead to believe she was trying to kick the Aussie girl’s face off.

Either way, pretty reckless.

UPDATE: Alena Mikhaltsova has been banned for 8 games for the kick.
