Referee boss Bill Harrigan has responded to criticism over the Greg Inglis try in State of Origin game one as well as the controversy over the sin-binning of Michael Jennings.

Harrigan told a packed press conference he strongly denies ever telling anyone "it was a try" after earlier media reports suggested otherwise.

The referees' boss who already confirmed this whilst speaking on Triple M Sydney this morning also said he agreed with the sin-binning of Michael Jennings in the 22nd minute.

Harrigan also denied he was under any pressure to change the ruling overnight because of the public reaction to the controversy.

If you missed the live stream on Fox Sports, you can catch what Bill Harrigan had to say on Cameron Smith's clash with Akuila Uate and Paul Gallen's attitude towards the refs during the game.
