Watch: Kanoa Lloyd give Mark Richardson a lesson in Te Reo pronunciation

Ex-cricketer and TV personality Mark Richardson is not afraid to say what is on his mind.

From "motherhood is not a job" to "kids need to harden up", he is happy to offer up an opinion on just about anything.

This week on The AM Show he got in to the spirit of Māori Language Week and had a go at speaking Te Reo.

So we took a few of his better-known quotes and translated them in to te reo Māori, then got Kanoa Lloyd to teach him how to say the phrases properly.

Watch the video to see the results.
