Second chances are hard to come by, and research commissioned by 2degrees reveals the majority of New Zealanders wish they could have another go at more than one aspect of their lives.
When more than 1,000 New Zealanders across the country were surveyed results found 69 percent of Kiwis would take a second chance if offered it, compared to 18 percent who wouldn’t.
The survey was conducted as part of development of a new series 2nd Chance Charlie, in which five ‘Charlies’ will battle it out for the ultimate second chance at rugby greatness. The winner will receive a money-can’t-buy opportunity with Super Rugby and a cash prize of $10,000.
Chief of Brand and Insights at 2degrees Ben Wheeler said the telco is stoked to partner with Three to bring 2nd Chance Charlie to life, as part of their support of NZ Super Rugby, and the research allowed them to delve a little more into the notion of fairness and second chances.
"Fairness is at the heart of what 2degrees strives for, and nothing says fair like a second chance. Our research found that most Kiwis would take a second chance if they were offered – just like our Charlies," he says.
Overwhelmed by the amount of talented entries from around the country, the decision wasn’t easy to pick just five lucky contenders.
The five 2nd Chance Charlies for 2020 are:
- Daniel Kauika
- David Egelstaff
- James Cockburn
- Otenili ‘Nili’ Moala
- Tai Tupou
