MILFORD MARLINS product Aaron Jones-Bishop scored a hat-trick of tries for Jamaica in a 16-16 draw with Wales at Belle Vue, Wakefield, tonight.

The Doncaster winger twice gave Jamaica the lead and crossed for the equalising try in the final moments, from a pass by Batley Bulldogs’ Wayne Reittie. Jy-mel Coleman improved Jones-Bishop’s first-half tries, but was off target with a late penalty goal and the final conversion.
