Former All Blacks captain Kieran Read has bombed a Newshub live cross while sports presenter Andrew Gourdie was telling viewers about the AB's chances against Argentina in tomorrow's thriller.

After hearing a story from Newshub's rugby reporter Ollie Ritchie, the camera turned back on to Gourdie, when Reid quickly whizzed past the camera.

"Go the ABs!" he yelled, before Gourdie even began talking.

"Absolu…" Gourdie started to say, before realising who it was.

"Kieran Read? That is former All Blacks captain Kieran Read just running past us here on his morning run," he told viewers at home.

"Brilliant stuff. How's the timing of that? Incredible."

It comes after the ABs triumphed after Ireland last week in a thrilling, high-intensity match that pushed both sides to their limits.
