#SayMyName campaign launches
Round 16 of the super rugby competition is the Say My Name round. Did you know that James Lentjes’ surname is pronounced Len-chiss, and not, Len-cheese? #SayMyName
ART New Zealand Rugby (NZR) has kick-started an initiative to get fans and supporters to pronounce Māori and Pasifika rugby players' names correctly.
The ‘#SayMyName’ campaign is fronted by former All Black Piri Weepu and features a number of players giving tips on how to properly pronounce their names.
The NZR hopes the video helps celebrate cultural diversity as all five New Zealand super rugby teams play in New Zealand this week.
