Brent Naden terrifies Emma Lawrence during Channel 9 NRL TV cross

Must Read

A cheeky NRL star had the last laugh over a Channel 9 reporter when he left her absolutely terrified during a cross on live TV.

If only opponents were as scared of the Bulldogs as this unsuspecting journalist.

Canterbury centre Brent Naden frightened Channel 9 NRL reporter Emma Lawrence to death during a live TV cross when he snuck up behind her at the airport, leaned close to her ear and made a loud noise.

Lawrence was terrified as she turned around, before relief swept over her and she managed a smile.

Thankfully for viewers, she did well to hold her tongue amid the shock so no bleeping was required.

Lawrence posted a clip of the incident on her Instagram account with the caption: “Heart rate still coming down (laughing emoji).”


Sadly for the Bulldogs this season, their bark is a lot worse than their bite. Despite recruiting players like Naden, Matt Burton, Josh Addo-Carr, Paul Vaughan and Matt Dufty, Trent Barrett’s troops have continued to struggle and find themselves on the bottom of the ladder with just two wins from 10 games.

They were abysmal on Friday night to kick off Magic Round in Brisbane, going down 16-6 to Newcastle in one of the ugliest games of the year.

The Dogs just couldn’t hold onto the ball and were their own worst enemy — something Barrett is getting used to admitting each week.

“It is disappointing,” he said in the post-match press conference.

“I think it probably summed us up all year the unforced errors and set ends at crucial times. They’re courageous and they try hard but that’s not enough to win you games.

“Until we learn to cut out those individual errors that we’re making, build pressure and come up with the right kick at the right time.

“I sound like a broken record with the press conferences because it’s the same every week. It’s not good enough.”

Barrett said “everyone” needs to step up, not just the new recruits who were supposed to spark Canterbury back into action after a rough trot in recent years.

“I’m not going to single out any individual, I thought across the board we’re just making too many errors and it’s making it too hard on ourselves,” he said.

“I think everyone needs to have a look at themselves.”
