The Canberra Raiders surprised many NRL fans by almost running away with the 2019 premiership. They finished fourth on the ladder and worked their way up to a grand final appearance, losing to the Sydney Roosters.
Still, they pulled off some memorable upsets, most notably against the Storm and the Rabbitohs. All in all, things are looking up in 2020.
The team also aced their recruitment drive by signing England half George Williams. He played nearly 200 games for Wigan, so he should be able to hit the ground running. He does have some big shoes to fill – Aidan Sezer, Jordan Rapana and BJ Leilua are all out.
Canberra also signed Curtis Scott from the Storm, who already has two grand final appearances and one premiership under his belt. Despite his troubles with the law on Australia Day, the NRL has determined he is allowed to play while he responds to the charges against him.
Fans of the Raiders face a tough time watching their side this season if they don't have a subscription service. In fact just three of their remaining matches are available on free-to-air TV. In the revamped draw for 2020, a whopping 15 Raiders games will be exclusive to FOX LEAGUE.
If you want to watch them all, as well as be able to tune in to every other NRL fixture, you can do so with Kayo Sports, Foxtel or Foxtel Now. Kayo Sports is the most affordable option of the bunch, with subscriptions available from $25/month. The platform also comes with fun features like SplitView and Interactive Stats.
Finally, you can also follow the Canberra Raiders with NRL Live Pass. If you're a Telstra customer, you can tune in for free. Keep in mind that live streaming is limited to a seven-inch display size, so you can't watch on the big screen.

With the addition of Williams and Scott, here's how the squad looks ahead of the 2020 NRL season.
The Canberra Raiders joined the NRL in 1982, as part of the NSWRFL premiership's first expansion outside Sydney. Since then, they've won three premierships out of six grand finals played. Their last premiership win was in 1994.
The Raiders were the first non-Sydney team to make the finals, feature in a grand final and win a premiership (1989). They play their home games at Canberra Stadium.
