Port proving to be favourites
PORT Macquarie are flying high after their narrow win over North Coffs and will be favoured to gain another four points albeit against a steadily improving Swans outfit.
No doubt the man the Swans will need to lend close attention to is Michael Kemp.
Kemp was outstanding last week and was the sole difference between the two sides.
The Swans have men to match him in the ruck but will need to be accountable when he roams forward.
Jesse Schmidt showed glimpses of brilliance across half-forward and combined brilliantly with Matthew Lill who played primarily at full-forward.
The red and whites opened their account for the season with a gritty two-goal win against the Lions at home.
Kris Rundell was again superb and deserves credit for his side’s resurgence.
The Swans looked more proactive forward which matched their strength down back. The forwards will have to fire against the miserly ‘Pies defence which is led by Craig Dicker and Greg Dean.
