How to watch Canberra Raiders vs Gold Coast Titans NRL live and free
Beaten grand finalists Canberra Raiders open their season at home to Gold Coast Titans.
Canberra Raiders vs Gold Coast Titans is the season opener for both teams and few clubs will be as keen to get the new campaign underway as the Raiders.
Falling just short in last year's grand final in controversial circumstances, the Raiders will be intensely driven to go one step further in 2020 and bury that frustration once and for all.
The Titans are another team desperate to improve. The Gold Coast outfit finished dead last with just 4 wins from their 24 matches in 2019.

Who will win Raiders vs Titans?
In newcomer Justin Holbrook, the Titans have an accomplished coach who led St Helens to the UK Super League title last season. But it only takes a quick scan of their round one squad to suggest it could be another long season for the Titans. Holbrook will need time to mould the squad into a competitive unit.
The Raiders meanwhile are built for now. Having come so close to a drought-breaking premiership last year, coach Ricky Stuart will expect his charges to fire early and fire often. Canberra should be far too strong in this game.
