Where to get your live sport fix this weekend

As live sport across the country slowly begins to return, here is all the action you can catch from your living room this weekend.

The absence of live sport around the world has left a huge hole in a lot of us.

We know you’re missing the thrill and excitement just as much as us, so here’s a list of live sport returning across Australia and around the world.

NRL

It’s back. The first of Australia’s elite sporting competitions to return, the NRL, has kicked off with a bang in the first round since it was paused over two months ago.

Fans were treated to high intensity and fast-paced displays, with several understandably tiring players contributing to plenty of excitement.

The Eels and Raiders remain the only teams to start the season with three wins, despite the Panthers and Knights also being undefeated after playing out a 14-14 draw.

This coming weekend’s action will again be kicked off by the Broncos, hosting the Roosters on Thursday night (4 June).

The Friday night (5 June) double header sees the Panthers v Warriors first up, followed by the Storm taking on the Rabbitohs.

Possibly the match of the round will be two undefeated sides going head-to-head, as the Raiders host the Knights on Sunday afternoon (7 June).

Check out the full weekend’s fixture here.

Where to watch: Catch the NRL action with several games live on Channel 9, otherwise head to Kayo Sports.

Football (Soccer)

Bundesliga – Germany

The world game is back, with the German Bundesliga marking the first of Europe’s top leagues to return.

This coming weekend’s action is perfect for Aussie fans, headlined by first-placed Bayern Munich facing fourth-placed Bayer Leverkusen at the more friendly time of 11:30pm (AEST) on Saturday night (6 June).

Depending on your current sleeping patterns, this rolls into the 2:30am fixture between Borussia Dortmund and Socceroo Mathew Leckie’s Hertha Berlin.

The most time-friendly match down under this weekend sees Werder Bremen host Wolfsburg at 9:30pm (AEST) on Sunday night (7 June).

Where to watch: Catch the Bundesliga live on Kayo Sports.


Mat Leckie’s Hertha Berlin will take on second-placed Dortmund this weekend.

Horse racing

Horse racing across Australia is still kicking, crowd-less of course, but all still available for your viewing pleasure.

Looking ahead to this weekend, Saturday 30 May will see a race days at  Flemington, Morphettville, and Eagle Park.

Where to watch: Get your racing fix and stay up to date on each and every race day at Racing.com.

So, as Australian sport slowly begins to return, sink your teeth into some live sport this weekend and stay safe at home.
