The NRL have backed their bunker's controversial calls to disallow two Canberra Raiders tries in the dying minutes of their loss to South Sydney. NRL referees boss Jared Maxwell said both of bunker official Henry Perenara's decisions were "spot on". Maxwell told The Canberra Times on Friday the onus was on the attacking team's to execute their plays correctly - with lead runners getting through the defensive line or pass-receivers catching the ball on the outside shoulder of the lead runner. His comments came after Raiders coach Ricky Stuart said both decisions lacked common sense because the Rabbitohs' defensive line wasn't impeded on either occasion. Raiders five-eighth Jack Wighton thought he'd scored twice inside the final six minutes of the Green Machine's 34-20 loss to the Rabbitohs at Canberra Stadium on Thursday night.
