2021 will see the NRL returning to the usual 25-round season after last year’s shortened format. This means that teams will play both home and away matches in Australia and New Zealand, which is great news for everyone involved, especially the fans.
NRL fans in the UK have the option of the Watch NRL service, which gives you streaming access to all the footy – every single match – for just £13 a month. It’s a good choice for real NRL diehards, but for everyone else, Sky Sports is now airing a whole load of NRL coverage live on TV (eight matches on the restart weekend!) in the absence of its normal UK sporting schedule.
If you don’t subscribe to Sky but want to tune in, fear not, as you can simply purchase a Sky Sports pass from Now TV with daily, weekly and monthly options all available off contract – from just £5.99 a month for a mobile-only pass.
This is an especially good offer as live sport seems to be slowly creeping back, and more leagues will hopefully be returning to Sky Sports alongside the NRL soon.
Watching the NRL Live Online
If you’re a resident of Australia and don’t have access to Fox League you may wish to review the Foxtel now free trial, which is good for 10 days and offers fans an opportunity to watch NRL online without set-up or equipment fees. Fox League is available with the Sports Pack, which offers instant access to over 50 Sports shown Live and on demand.
