Junior Warriors set to take same side into grand final

6:07 am on 29 September 2010

The Junior Warriors are set to take an unchanged line-up into Sunday's NYC grand final against the South Sydney Rabbitohs at ANZ Stadium.

Coach John Ackland has named the same line-up used in last Friday night's historic 23-16 victory over the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.

While captain Ben Henry was forced off the field with an ankle injury against the Bulldogs, he has been named and says he expects to be able to face the Rabbitohs.

The Junior Warriors' win over the Bulldogs carried them into their first NYC grand final and the chance to give the club its first premiership.

It is Ackland's second coaching experience on the final day of the Australian competition's season, having guided the Warriors' under-19 side to an unsuccessful outing in the 1997 grand final.
