Here's all you need to know about the Canberra Raiders' 2021 Telstra Premiership draw.

The Lowdown Teams they play twice Dragons, Eels, Knights, Roosters, Sea Eagles, Sharks, Storm, Titans, Warriors

Teams they play once

Broncos, Bulldogs, Cowboys, Panthers, Rabbitohs, Tigers

Day-by-day breakdown Thursday – 5, Friday – 4, Saturday – 13, Sunday – 2

Turnarounds 5 days – 3, 6 days – 5, 7+ days – 15

Kick-off Canberra should start favourites in each of their first four games, beginning with a home clash against the Wests Tigers. Matches against the Sharks, Warriors and Titans follow before a couple of tricky contests against top-four contenders Penrith in round five and Parramatta in round six.

    Five key match-ups Eels (Round 6, GIO Stadium; Round 19 Bankwest Stadium)

Just one point separated the Raiders and Ricky Stuart's former team in last year's clash at Bankwest Stadium, a Clinton Gutherson field goal handing Parramatta a golden-point victory.

Both these teams should again be in premiership contention, making these two contests a crucial barometer of how they'll be shaping up in next year's finals equation.

Bulldogs (Round 10, Suncorp Stadium – Magic Round)

Canterbury splashed the cash to land former Raiders star Nick Cotric, who will go up against his old teammates in Magic Round in Brisbane. The neutral venue means Cotric won't have to face a Canberra home crowd this year.

The teams met once in 2019, with Canberra prevailing 34-20 at home, and they'll be expecting to get the job done again in round 10.

NRL 2021 draw: Magic Round, Easter and Anzac blockbusters return

The 2021 Telstra Premiership draw features something for everyone with blockbusters throughout, the return of much-loved traditional Easter and Anzac fixtures, Magic Round, stacks of regional games and Origin back in the middle of the year.

After the chaos of a restructured 2020 and the loss of those marquee events due to COVID, each is back in the schedule for next year.

The traditional Easter clashes are back with the Bulldogs and Bunnies going at it on Good Friday in round four and the Eels hosting Wests Tigers on Easter Monday.

Anzac Round falls in round seven, with Anzac Day on the Sunday to feature a triple-header of NRL games starting with the Wests Tigers v Manly at Bankwest Stadium at 1.45pm.

The Roosters and the Dragons will face off at the SCG at 4.05pm with the Storm and Warriors from AAMI Park at 6.15pm.

After missing out last season on hosting an Anzac Round match due to the two-month shutdown, Townsville gets to host an Anzac fixture with the Raiders to visit Queensland Country Bank Stadium on Saturday, April 24.

Magic Round falls in round 10 with eight games over three days and one Queensland team to headline each day's action with Manly v Brisbane on Friday night, Roosters v Cowboys on Saturday night and Titans v Panthers to cap off the round on Sunday evening.

The Storm celebrate their 2020 grand final win.   The Storm celebrate their 2020 grand final win. ?Grant Trouville/NRL Photos   The Telstra Premiership kicks off on March 11 with a Thursday night blockbuster between premiers Melbourne and last season's fast-finishing preliminary finalists South Sydney, pitting master coaches Craig Bellamy and Wayne Bennett against each other.

Wooden spooners Brisbane start their season at home against recent tormentors Parramatta on the Friday night while the round concludes with a local dervy between the Dragons and Sharks on Sunday evening.

The other round one fixtures feature Newcastle v Canterbury in the earlier Friday game, Warriors v Titans, Roosters v Sea Eagles and Panthers v Cowboys on Saturday and Raiders v Wests Tigers on Sunday afternoon.

Raiders set to be rewarded with more free-to-air exposure

The Canberra Raiders look set to be rewarded with more free-to-air coverage next season off the back of another deep NRL finals campaign. While it's unclear exactly how many of their 24 home-and-away games will be shown on Channel Nine, it's believed to be better than what Ricky Stuart's Green Machine have become accustomed to in recent years. It's believed they'll have at least three home games televised on free-to-air - beginning with their round one clash against the Wests Tigers at Canberra Stadium on March 14 - plus a handful more on the road. They also opened their 2020 season at home - against the Gold Coast Titans - before the COVID-19 virus shutdown the competition. The Canberra Times can also reveal the Raiders will host the Newcastle Knights in Wagga Wagga on May 8 - the day after the Wagga Gold Cup.

In an impressive start to his time Down Under, Canberra Raiders recruit Harry Rushton was up at 3.30am doing weights. Jet lag's a killer hey. The former Wigan Warrior hasn't taken long to put to the gym equipment Raiders recruitment guru Peter Mulholland set up for him good use in his hotel quarantine in Sydney. Having arrived from England on Tuesday morning, Rushton was up before dawn on Wednesday and figured he might as well hit the gym.

NRL returns to regional NSW in 2021

The National Rugby League today announced the 2021 NRL Telstra Premiership Schedule will include six matches in regional NSW Towns, bringing elite rugby league back to the bush after a COVID-19 impacted season.

The following locations will host games in the EISS Super Regional Series NRL Telstra Premiership. Teams in brackets will take a home game to the regional centre:

  • Bathurst (Penrith Panthers)
  • Wagga Wagga (Canberra Raiders)
  • Tamworth (Wests Tigers)
  • Dubbo (South Sydney Rabbitohs)
  • Mudgee (Manly Warringah Sea Eagles)
  • Coffs Harbour (Cronulla Sutherland Sharks)
Australian Rugby League Commission Chairman Peter V'landys AM said rugby league was in the DNA of regional NSW and the Commission would deliver on a promise to bring more elite rugby league to the regions.

"I made a promise to regional NSW that we would take games back to the bush as soon as the competition returned to normality. The infection rate is now zero so we will deliver on that promise and schedule NRL games in six different towns,'' he said.

"Nowhere is rugby league stronger than in our regions. This year COVID meant we were only able to take one game to regional NSW, so we will make good on that with six games next year.

"One of the Commission's major objectives in the next three years is to reinvigorate Country Rugby League. Accordingly there is no better way than to take the game's stars to Country heartland and inspire participation at all levels."

Mr V'landys thanked NSW Deputy Premier John Barilaro for his ongoing support of rugby league.

"There's no stronger supporter in government for our game than the Deputy Premier. Without the efforts of John we would not have been able to play this year. His common sense approach procures major outcomes for NSW,'' he said.

"John with his common touch understands how important taking these matches to the bush are and what it means to these communities.

"I also want to thank our six clubs for their commitment to taking a home game to a regional centre and EISS Super for their support of the regional series."
