The Junior Warriors' hopes of a third National Rugby League under-20 title in four years foundered on injury setbacks and critically contentious calls as they lost 42-30 to Penrith in the grand final in Sydney.

The Warriors recovered from 34-6 down after 47 minutes to trail by just 4 with 11 minutes to go.
