Referees chief BILL HARRIGAN has backed the decision of video referee STEVE CLARK to award a try to Queensland centre JUSTIN HODGES in last night's State of Origin clash in Brisbane.

NSW were left fuming after the 37th-minute effort was allowed, claiming BEAU SCOTT and ROBBIE FARAH were obstructed by BEN HANNANT, and HODGES ran behind his Brisbane teammate to score.

The official wording of the NRL's obstruction rule says the runner cannot run behind his own team and gain an advantage.

However, HARRIGAN says a change was made to the interpretation of the rule last year and CLARK made the correct call.
