Broadcaster John Campbell accidentally dropped the F-bomb live on air on Sunday.
The veteran TV broadcaster was a guest on The Devlin Radio Show and was discussing the upcoming game at Eden Park between the Blues and The Hurricanes with host Martin Devlin.
Campbell, a fervent Hurricanes fan, was enthusing about his team's chances. When the two men had finished Devlin wrapped up the segment, but then wanted Campbell to tell a story, so got him back on air.
Campbell didn't realise it was live and was telling a story involving his father when he said:
"My father, who wasn't very good at suppressing what he felt, decided to f**cking..."
Devlin quickly intervened but not before Campbell followed up with "you can't tell that old bastard to shut the f**k up."
Devlin cut in again, telling Campbell they were live on air.
"That's going to be three separate broadcasting complaints as well as that show on RNZ [Mediawatch]," Devlin said.
Listen to the exchange above.
