How to watch North Queensland Cowboys vs Newcastle Knights NRL live and free


Desperate North Queensland take on Newcastle in round 7 of the NRL. This is how to catch Cowboys vs Knights.

SUMMARY: Cowboys vs Knights is exclusive to Fox League. So unless you're already an existing Foxtel customer, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for NRL free using this 14-day trial. This gets you access to all its unique features and 50 additional live sports.

Cowboys vs Knights offers under-fire North Queensland a shot at getting their spluttering season back on track. The Cowboys have lost 3 straight games including a poor effort last week against West Tigers when they trailed 34-0 at half-time.

The Knights are quietly enjoying a solid start to the season. With four wins and a draw from their opening six games, they are keen to shore up their place in the top four at Queensland Country Bank Stadium.

Who will win Cowboys vs Knights?

With the heat on the Cowboys and coach Paul Green, we expect them to put in a much better performance this week. A victory over the Knights wouldn't be a shock. Yet Newcastle are travelling a little too well right now in their top-four pursuit to let this match slip.
