You got the first move correct, sir Stu. But I think we need to show all the possible moves of black after that, in order to complete the puzzle. There are 27 possible moves after Rd2, 7 of them (marked) are those you have specified.

  Code:
(alternative second moves are not shown)
1. Rd2   Bb1   2. Bd5#
…   Bb2   2. Nxb2#
…   Bc2   2. Bd5#
…   Bc8   2. Qd3#
…   Bd3   2. Qxd3# <--
…   Bd7   2. Qd3#
…   Be4   2. Ne5# <--
…   Be6   2. Qd3#
…   Bg4   2. Qd3#
…   Bg6   2. Bd5#
…   Bh3   2. Qd3#
…   Bh7   2. Bd5#
…   Bxa3   2. Bd5#
…   Bxd2   2. Nb2# <--
…   Re1   2. Bd5#
…   Re3   2. Nxe3#
…   Re4   2. Qd3#
…   Re5   2. Nxe5# <--
…   Re6   2. Bd5#
…   Re7   2. Bd5#
…   Re8   2. Bd5#
…   Rf2   2. Ne5#
…   Rg2   2. Ne5#
…   Rh2   2. Ne5#
…   Rxd2   2. Ne3# <--
…   b3   2. Qa4# <--
…   bxa3   2. Bd5# <--
