Hi Niall,

You can add the Story Point field to the Bug issue type, and then you will have the ability to estimate bugs. For more on changing the field configuration see Configuring Fields and Screens.

My guess is that bugs aren't usually brought into a sprint at planning, but I'd just customise it if need be.
