personal for Ruby Tui
She's a powerhouse on the rugby field and a hero to legions of fans, but despite being at the top of her game Ruby Tui says she'll never forget where she came from or what her childhood taught her.
Tui knows what it's like to pack a bag in a hurry to escape domestic violence, which is why she's partnered with the charity I Got Your Backpack and Bunnings for their annual appeal for survivors of domestic abuse.
As a child Tui spent time at a Women's Refuge when her mother fled a violent relationship.
