NRL player Corey Harawira-Naera has been recruited to teach schoolgirls about road safety due to his intimate knowledge of road rules and schoolgirls. Harawira-Naera will present a series of one-on-one and small group tutorials to senior secondary girls throughout the country after he was recently caught drink driving.
Harawira-Naera returned a high-range alcohol reading when pulled over by police on Christmas Eve 2020, and earns his second nomination for The Frownlow Medal in as many years. The Kiwi international scored his first nomination when he was caught having sex with a schoolgirl in Port Macquarie while on a training camp with the Canterbury Bulldogs. He was initially kicked out of the NRL but was allowed to return when it was discovered that the girl’s grades had drastically improved.
The Frownlow Medal is awarded to the player whose off-field demeanour epitomises the values of the modern-day footballer and draws attention to the status of footballers as role models to young Australians. It covers Australia’s four major football codes; the National Rugby League (NRL), Australian Football League (AFL), the A-League (Football) and Rugby Union’s Super Rugby competition. NRL player Shaun Kenny-Dowall won the inaugural medal in 2015, while AFL player Elijah Taylor is the most recent recipient.
The front-rower will participate in a self-drive tour of the country visiting designated girls secondary schools. It will be sponsored by a conglomerate of Australian breweries and will be heavily promoted through social media, because that is how Corey prefers to communicate with young women. The Raiders enforcer is said to be very excited about the lecture tour, and his prospects in 2021.
Harawira-Naera signed a contract with the Canberra Raiders for the second half of the 2020 season and apparently vowed to give up alcohol and put his scandalous past behind him. That promise didn’t last long.
“I was pretty devo about not winning the Frownlow last year because, you know, I got with a school girl and that’s a pretty bad look for the sport – but I still didn’t win,” he explained.
“I knew I was never gonna win the Frownlow if I stayed off the grog, so I got the boys together and got hammered, and because it was Christmas Eve I was pretty sure I’d be pulled over. Now I’ve started 2021 with a bang – got myself a nomination so it’s all cool – I’ll see what else I can do this year, it’s only February bro.”
The road safety tour will begin in Canberra in the middle of February, and is open to any schoolgirl over the age of consent.
