Aussie Rules: Scott aware of dangerous Swans

Geelong coach Chris Scott says Sydney ace Lance Franklin will get their full attention when the two sides clash but is well aware of the dangers throughout the rest of the Swans side.

The Cats are priced at 11/10 to beat Sydney in the round-two clash and Franklin is a man on a mission as he closes in on 1000 career AFL goals.

Multiple threats

Franklin is a huge threat but there is a danger of focusing on him too much, which allows the likes of Luke Parker and Isaac Heeney to fly under the radar and do some damage.

But Scott is on to that and says his side will have a plan to cope with all the threats in the Swans side.

"We'll certainly prioritise Lance, we owe him that respect, but Heeney and Parker are super players and it's impossible for them to sneak up on us," Scott said.

"It's not impossible for them to play well against us, they're just really good players, but it won't be because they surprised us. I understand the logic that if you focus too much on a gun then others can bob up - it's sort of what we're trying to do at the other end as well - but they present multiple threats, the Swans."

Pitch invasion

There has been talk of a pitch invasion taking place to celebrate Franklin’s milestone should he boot the four goals that he needs. Preparations are being made for the game being delayed and Scott says they will not be party poopers.

"It's a good-news story, too, so we don't want to be the ones complaining about a little bit of difficulty and spoiling the moment,” Scott added. "He's just been a champion of our game and I don't even know what I think about the crowd going on the field. I guess I think it's a good thing. Just don't slip over."
