Referee's coach Robert Finch says match day officials were right in not awarding a try to Parramatta forward Glenn Morrison in the Eels narrow finals loss to Melbourne.
Finch has reviewed the footage after Eels players claimed the ruling had cost them the match in the 12-6 loss which also ended their season. But Finch has supported the view of video referees Chris Ward and Phil Cooley who decided there was insufficient evidence to award a try to Morrison.
The video review found no evidence of the ball touching the ground.
Finch has also supported the decision by referee Sean Hampstead on Friday night in sin binning Knights centre George Carmont and Manly pair Travis Burns and Ben Kennedy.
