How to watch North Queensland Cowboys vs Canberra Raiders NRL live and free

Posted: 1 August 2020 10:17 am

North Queensland can put a dent in Canberra's top 4 hopes when they meet in round 12. This is how to catch all the action.

SUMMARY: Cowboys vs Raiders 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 free trial. This gets you access to all its unique features and 50 additional live sports.

Four straight heavy defeats have devastated North Queensland's already-slim finals prospects. With just 9 rounds remaining, the Cowboys are 3 wins outside the top 8 and sliding sharply from relevance in 2020.

But if they can't reach the postseason themselves, the Cows can at least help to shape the remaining contenders. The top four places are crucial and the fifth-placed Raiders have been skirting those spots all year. If they lose this one they risk losing further ground.

When is North Queensland Cowboys vs Canberra Raiders?

Kick-off is at 5:30pm AEST on Saturday 1 August at Queensland Country Bank Stadium in Townsville. You can see the full 2020 NRL season draw here.

Who will win Cowboys vs Raiders?

The Cowboys have shown they can upset the form book, especially at home, such as in their upset victory over the Knights in round seven. But with plenty on the line for the Raiders, we find it hard to see the Green Machine letting this game slip.
