NYC FINALS | Knights next

The Vodafone Junior Warriors have been handed another Saturday NYC finals assignment when they return to Allianz Stadium to face Newcastle next weekend (5.15pm kick-off local time; 7.15pm NZT).

Their match will be the curtain-raiser to the NRL semi-final between first week loser Manly and Canterbury-Bankstown, which stunningly eliminated Melbourne 28-4 at AAMI Park today.

The Stacey Jones-coached Vodafone Junior Warriors reached week two of the NYC finals by ending the Sydney Roosters’ season with a 44-30 win yesterday.

Newcastle won the NYC minor premiership but was upset 22-30 by St George Illawarra yesterday.

In the other semi-final on Friday night, Brisbane meets Wests Tigers.
