Hilarious moment New Zealand reporter almost blown over caught live on camera

A New Zealand reporter was almost blown off his feet in a hilarious live cross to the news studio on Saturday.

Reporter Ross Karl was in Sydney, Australia, ahead of the Bledisloe Cup opener featuring Kiwi teams the Black Ferns and the All Blacks.

As he crossed live into the Prime News bulletin from outside the stadium, he could barely stay standing due to fierce winds.

"I'm sorry, I've got to brace myself - this wind is over 40 kilometres an hour!" Karl said mid-sentence.

Even Prime News presenter Janika ter Ellen couldn't contain herself, letting out a laugh as she watched Karl's struggles.

"Alright thanks Ross - go and fix that hair, would you?" she joked.

Karl and ter Ellen are also reporters for Newshub.
