Junior Warriors vying for third title

  • Australia

The Junior Warriors will be looking to notch up their third title when they face the Penrith Panthers in the NRL's National Youth Competition this weekend.

The Junior Warriors have notched up 112 points in the last two weeks, and as a result, the team feels confident ahead of the upcoming NRL U20 grand final. 

A high scoring game in the preliminary final would normally prompt additional focus on defence, but that's something the Junior Warriors have been working on all year.

The Junior Warriors face the Panthers in the grand final, a strong team that finished second on the competition table after the regular season games.

This grand final spot also gives the team an opportunity to reward their departing coach, John Ackland, with the ultimate farewell gift.

The grand final kicks off at 5:45pm on Sunday at ANZ Stadium in Sydney.
