Bulldogs back Brent Naden has given Channel Nine reporter Emma Lawrence a classic scare, leaving her so stunned she had to restrain herself from calling him a ‘son of a bitch’.
The new recruit from Canterbury arrived at Brisbane airport on Friday afternoon ahead of the Dogs’ magic round opener against the Knights.
The 26-year-old was seen sneaking up on Emma Lawrence, who joined Nine last year after leaving Channel 10 news.

Naden walked over to Lawrence and yelled in her ear as she prepared for a lively crossing, leaving her and everyone else in the vicinity absolutely shocked.
Lawrence turned around and muttered ‘mother…’ before barely stopping herself from finishing the swear word.
The reporter posted Naden’s prank on her Instagram story on Friday night with the caption, “Thank you @bnaden3 for the mild heart attack.”
Lawrence posted the jump scare on her Instagram story, joking that Naden gave her a “mild heart attack.”
NRL on Nine reposted the scare on Instagram on Saturday morning with the caption: “News crossovers ain’t easy.”
In the video, Wide World of Sports rugby league presenter James Bracey can be heard laughing and saying: “What were you going to say there, Emma?”
The reporter was stunned and muttered “mother…” to Naden, before stopping herself from saying the swear word as everyone else in the airport looked on in shock.
The reporter is the sister of former Wests Tigers star Chris Lawrence, who played 253 games for the club between 2006 and 2020.
Lawrence debuted for the Tigers as a 17-year-old student days before his HSC exams, retiring in 2020 after his career was plagued by hip and face injuries.

Naden wouldn’t have been laughing a few hours after his prank, as the Bulldogs lost 16-6 to the Knights in an embarrassing team performance.
The second Matt Dufty blooper in as many weeks summed up the Canterbury night, as the fullback fell in love with a Matt Clune doll despite having no teammates to pass to.
The Bulldogs fell to the bottom of the ladder with just two wins in 10 games with fans noting that they are “worse than last year.”
In front of 30,220 people in the opening game of the Magic Round, the Knights did enough to snap a seven-game losing streak and drop off the bottom of the table.

Walking into the sheds 6-6 at halftime, Barrett’s Bulldogs proved once again that they struggle to put points on the scoreboard.
Canterbury came out on top as Knights prop Daniel Saifiti had a try disallowed for obstruction, while forwards Leo Thompson and Pasami Saulo sent the ball over the try line.
The Bulldogs have four points of contention after 10 rounds, putting even more pressure on coach Trent Barrett.
