The New Zealand Warriors under-20 side have again reached the Grand Final of Australia's National Youth Cup rugby league competition.

The Junior Warriors beat the Bulldogs juniors 54-38 in their semi-final at Sydney's ANZ Stadium.

It was a see-saw game with the Junior Warriors scored three tries in eight minutes to sprint out to a 16-nil lead, before the Junior Bulldogs struck back with six tries of their own for 34 unanswered points.

Behind 34-16 at half-time, the Warriors looked gone for all money at this point but dug in to level it at 34-34 before settling it with three final tries.

It's the second straight week in the finals that the Warriors have put 50 points on their opponents and is the Warriors' third Grand Final.
