Swans’ Jacks of all trades

HE MAY have played just three games, but Swans rookie Brandon Jack has already claimed bragging rights against his big brother, co-captain Kieren.

Coming on as a substitute in the first quarter yesterday after key forward Sam Reid suffered a recurrence of a quad injury, Brandon booted four goals as the premiers won by 31 points, 16.20 (116) to 13.7 (85).

Kieren's best has been three goals in a game (twice).

While the margin was comfortable, Swans coach John Longmire would not have been happy that his team was outscored in the second half.

Melbourne continued to play with a new freedom under interim coach Neil Craig, with Chris Dawes, Jeremy Howe and Jack Fitzpatrick providing targets up forward, and Dean Terlich and Tom McDonald working hard in defence.

Swans recruit Kurt Tippett again showed he could be the buy of the year come finals time with some good leading and strong marking, although his kicking for goal let him down.
