The 2020 NRL season kicks off in March, and for those who will be travelling outside of the region it’s time to find a suitable way to watch all of the action. Fortunately, Watch NRL has you covered, providing an affordable and easy to use live streaming service for rugby league lovers outside of Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands.
NRL 2020 Premiership Season Preview
The 2020 NRL season will kick off on Thursday, the 12th of March, and will run through until Sunday the 4th of October, when the 113th Grand Final will be contested. 16 teams will battle it out for eight places in the final series, and with a huge number of teams capable of challenging for those spots – and indeed the Premiership itself – it shapes up as an enthralling season.
The Sydney Roosters will attempt to become since Parramatta in the early ’80s to win three on the trot, and led by reigning Dally M Medallist James Tedesco and boasting a team filled to the brim with talent, they will prove extremely difficult to beat throughout the season. They’ll head in as Premiership favourites, but there will plenty of resistance from the likes of the Storm, the Raiders and the Rabbitohs to name just a few.
The Raiders were the surprise packet of 2019, making the Grand Final after finishing 10th the year prior, and they were just minutes away from their first Premiership since 1994. Built around a brilliant defence they will once again be expected to challenge this year. So too will the Storm, whose seemingly endless run of finals appearances doesn’t seem likely to end any time soon. Again led by Cameron Smith, who will turn 37 during the year, they should be well and truly in the mix come September
