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

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.
