The Canberra Raiders have locked in two pre-season trials for 2022, against the Sydney Roosters and Manly Sea Eagles. A double-header at Leichhardt Oval on February 18 against the Roosters will kick-start their campaign, with the Wests Tigers hosting Manly on the same night. Canberra will then play the Sea Eagles in Gosford a week later. The Raiders had also hoped to play a trial match in Moruya, but this has been postponed with the club seeking to reschedule a South Coast match for 2023. The 2022 trial match program will see matches broadcast on Fox League and Kayo as part of a joint initiative with the NRL, with rugby league fans given the opportunity to attend the matches live or watch a high-quality broadcast from their living rooms.
