NRL trials 2022: Full games schedule and broadcast options

Posted: 25 February 2022 4:00 pm

The 2022 season is almost here and all NRL clubs will take the field one last time before the offical kick-off.

SUMMARY: All NRL trial games are exclusive to Fox League. Unless you're already a Foxtel customer, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch 2 weeks' worth of trial games for free using this 14-day trial.

After most teams left out the bulk of their first grade squads in the first week of the trials. This week fans get a proper glimpse at their sides starting 17.

New recruits Josh Addo-Carr, Matt Burton, Jackson Hastings, Jamal Fogarty, Chad Townsend, Nicho Hynes and more will all step out for their first hit out in their new club colours this week.

How to watch NRL trials 2022

The only way to watch all trial games in 2022 is through Fox League. Rather than getting unreliable Facebook streams from your clubs (albeit free ones), this year they will all be available only via Foxtel IQ, Foxtel Now or Kayo Sports.

While they won't be free, at least the streams will be reliable and should also have commentators that you're familiar with.

Kayo will also have every NRL and NRLW game live this year too. If you check out our Kayo Sports review, you will see that we're big fans of it. Like any service, it has some small problems, but overall it annihilates the competition.
