HYUNDAI CODE is encouraging te reo with its Maori Language Week edition this week – guest starring Te Wiki o Te Reo ambassador and former Hurricane Tamati Ellison.

Back from playing rugby in Japan, Ellison shares the HYUNDAI CODE couch this week with two other fluent Maori language speakers, Tall Fern Aroha Jennings and the first Maori to captain the Silver Ferns, June Mariu.

Broadcasting on New Zealand’s only indigenous television network, HYUNDAI CODE presenters Awen Guttenbiel and Wairangi Koopu give their take on Maori Language Week. They send Ellison out on the street to see what people think of Quade Cooper playing for the Reds and who will win the Super 15 final this weekend between the Reds and the Crusaders.

Speaking of Super 15, the competition might have ended for the Auckland Blues after last weekend’s loss, but coach Pat Lam is on the couch this week reflecting on this year’s season.

Keeping with the Maori Language Week theme, the Mahurangi College kapa haka are in to perform live on set.

There’s two weeks left to enter our Grab-a-seat competition for a trip to Las Vegas and HYUNDAI CODE also has a Universal Food Oven up for grabs this week worth $900.

No reira kia kaha ki te tautoko i te reo Maori me HYUNDAI CODE.

It is all on as Mana Shield comes to a head this week with the final three challenges coming to you live from the HYUNDAI CODE set.

The current score sees defending shield champions, the Fressionals leading the table 5-3 meaning the Brofessionals have to win all three challenges this week to win. The final challenges consist of a human fly wall to see who can jump the highest, a limbo to see who can bend the lowest and the press up kai race involving strength and having a big mouth.

The Freshies won last year’s Mana Shield, will Awen Guttenbiel and Ruben Wiki continue their winning streak or will Oz and KT pull one out of the bag.

Speaking of kai, this week HYUNDAI CODE is giving way a big feed, that’s dinner for 20 at Nando’s restaurant.

Also on the show, Awen Guttenbiel catches up with the Silver Ferns before they head off to the world netball championships in Singapore next month.

Mana Shield heats up as the boys take on go karting. With this being the second to last challenge before next week’s live final, the stakes a high and this week’s consequence promises to be very messy with the winners are doing a makeover on the losers of the go kart challenge.

HYUNDAI CODE talks about climbing mountains, Rugby World Cup 2011 and farm life this week.

Former top cricketer Adam Parore is back from his trip to the Himalayas where he climbed the world’s highest peak, Mt Everest, last month. He is joined on the HYUNDAI CODE couch by former All Black captain Ian Kirkpatrick in the lead up to Rugby World Cup 2011.

This week is the second to last Mana Shield challenge and so we are doing things a bit different. Competition is heating up between the Bros – Oz and KT – and the Freshies – Awen and Ruben – and is set to get hotter with tomorrow night’s dance extravaganza being shot live in the studio.

Tune in Thursday night to see who wins the dance battle and who has to undergo the loser’s consequence of dancing “show girls” style, complete with feathers and leotards, live on the HYUNDAI CODE set with support from Diamond Entertainment.

See how the two former All Blacks tear it up with chainsaws and give viewers a chance to win their own awesome STIHL chainsaw.

Meanwhile, Awen and Wairangi check out The Legendary Nation, a Chinese performing arts show, and catch up with a couple of kung fu artists who teach them a bit about the ancient martial art. But since neither of the two can speak Chinese, it adds a whole new meaning to being “lost in translation”.

You can also check out this week’s up and coming band, The Hypnotics, performing live on set with their R’n’B flows.

Check out HYUNDAI CODE, live every Thursday from 8.30 to 9.30PM.
