Junior Warriors win Premiership

6:00 am on 4 October 2010

The New Zealand Warriors were heartbroken at being knocked out in the first round of the National Rugby League finals, but their next generation have powered to an impressive 42-28 victory over South Sydney in the Toyota Cup Under 20 decider in Sydney.

It's been a consistent season for the New Zealand franchise, with the first grade team's fifth-place finish and the under 20s push for the Premiership earning the Warriors the NRL club championship.

The Warriors piled on 30 points in the second half to bury the Rabbitohs, who were the best team throughout the regular season.
