Leeds Rhinos v Bradford Bulls: Try was correct call - Jones-Bishop

Hat-trick hero Ben Jones-Bishop insisted his match-winning try in Leeds Rhinos' season-opening victory over Bradford Bulls was the correct call.

Rhinos won 32-28 at Millennium Stadium yesterday, after trailing 28-10 with 17 minutes left.

The winning score was a penalty try awarded by video referee Richard Silverwood, after Jones-Bishop had been taken out by Gareth Raynor as he chased his own kick.

"I thought it was the right decision," said Jones-Bishop. "When I kicked on I thought it was the right weight and I would have got to it."

Bulls had few complaints about about the penalty try, but felt Chev Walker should have had a touchdown confirmed by Silverwood before Leeds' fightback began.

Leeds-born Walker – a former Rhinos player – said: "It looked like a try to me, but the video referee said not, so it doesn't stand. I'm sure we'll get a call later on in the year."
