Another NRL season is now over, and as the realisation dawns on many fans that they won’t get a chance to whinge about the refs for another six months, the only comfort I can offer is that it also means it’s time revisit my fearless predictions.
The Parramatta Eels and Brisbane Broncos will put their respective NRL seasons on the line in the first week of the finals when they play an elimination final. This is The Roar’s guide to live streaming the match online, or watching it on TV.
The match is scheduled to kick-off at 4:05pm (AEST) on Sunday, September 15, with it to be held at the home of the Eels, Bankwest Stadium in Parramatta, to the west of Sydney.
The Eels managed to take fifth place on the ladder at the end of the regular season following a big win over the Manly Sea Eagles at the same venue last week. It’s a venue that, since opening, the Eels have won eight out of their ten games.
The Broncos, on the other hand, could have been bounced out of the finals with a final-round loss to the Canterbury Bulldogs, but clung on.
The two sides last met just a fortnight ago, in Round 24, when the Broncos got the better of the Eels by a point in golden point.
As has been the case with every other match this weekend, and into the next two weeks, you’ll be able to watch this match on TV through both free to air TV and pay TV.
Fox Sports will cover the game on Fox League, which can be found on Channel 502 through pay TV, while the free to air alternative is
Channel 9 and can be found at Channel 90 in high definition, or Channel 91 in standard definition.
Both networks will begin their coverage of the game at the conclusion of the NRLW clash between the St George Illawarra Dragons and Brisbane Broncos, which is set to kick-off at 2:05pm (AEST).
To watch the coverage on Fox Sports, you will need to have a valid Foxtel TV subscription, complete with the sports package of channels.
If you’d prefer to live stream the match online, then the best way to do so will be through Kayo Sports, which has the rights to all of Foxtel’s sports channels and other selected events from Australia and around the world for $25 per month.
