How to watch Canberra Raiders vs St George Illawarra Dragons NRL live and free


The Raiders will be fired up to snap a 2-game losing skid when they welcome the Dragons to Canberra. This is how to watch.

SUMMARY: Raiders vs Dragons 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 free using this 14-day trial. This gets you access to all its unique features and 50 additional live sports.

Raiders vs Dragons features a Canberra outfit that has slipped down the ladder in recent weeks. Sitting comfortably in the top four a fortnight ago, consecutive defeats to Manly and Parramatta have them sitting a little vulnerably in seventh on the ladder.

Thankfully for Dragons fans, they have been heading in the opposite direction. They finally arrested a dreadful start to 2020 with back-to-back wins over the Titans and Sharks before a loss to the Roosters last weekend.

When is Raiders vs Dragons?

Kick-off is at 6pm AEST on Friday 3 July at GIO Stadium in Canberra. The full 2020 NRL season draw is here.

Who will win Raiders vs Dragons?

Just when it seemed St George Illawarra's season was going to implode and coach Paul McGregor would be shown the door, they have shown some much-needed competitiveness. Yet with the Raiders sliding down the ladder and in need of a win, we don't think the Green Machine will have too much trouble knocking off the Dragons at home.
