Ruby Tui, 25 years-old, is an experienced rugger with 12 Sevens Series tournaments to her name. Tui recognizes teammate Huriana Manuel as her favorite rugby player, noting that she is influential, inspiring, honest, humble, and hard working. As a three year-old, she used to try to play rugby with her older cousins. She never wanted to touch the ball, but enjoyed running around in team colors.
