Barrett, Poore quiet on behaviour claims

NSW duo Trent Barrett and Justin Poore have refused to comment on claims of unsportsmanlike behaviour in the dramatic final minutes of the Blues' Origin III win over Queensland on Wednesday night.

Arriving in Sydney on Thursday afternoon, Barrett and Poore faced questions over their conduct following the incident which saw Queensland prop Steve Price knocked out by a Brett White punch and then flattened by a Trent Waterhouse tackle.

Waterhouse was sent off for the blindside hit and will fight to beat a one-match ban at the NRL judiciary on Thursday night, but it was Barrett who earned the ire of the Maroons with fiery centre Justin Hodges accusing him of laughing as he stood by the injured prop.

There were also claims Price was picked up as he lay on the ground, and despite replays being inconclusive, it seemed the Maroons were pointing the finger at Poore, who laughed off the claims.

"I'm not giving you anything," he told reporters.

"I can't remember anything, it was a pretty quick game and I don't remember much."

Of the claims of unsportsmanlike conduct, Poore said:

"It doesn't bother me. It's just footy, I'm glad we won.

"They won the series, they should be happy, we were just happy we could win one out of the three. I thought we played great, that's all the counts."

Barrett refused to answer any questions.
