PORT City Breakers will resemble the Brisbane Broncos during Saturday’s home clash with Wingham at Regional Stadium.

The Breakers will hold an important day for the club where they swap the traditional light blue, white and navy strip with replicas of their 1994 maroon and yellow jerseys.

The ladder-leaders cause could be further helped by a possible absence of up to four Wingham players following an ugly brawl at the conclusion of their game last weekend.

Joel Kliendienst and Shannon Ellem were sent off by referee Corey Richardson.

Centre Tim Bridge and five-eighth Kurt Lewis have been cited by the group’s match review committee.

Bridge has pleaded guilty to a high tackle charge, but will be seeking a downgrade while Lewis will face charges of striking a player on the ground.

Kemp wanted a further improved effort from his team after errors again crept in during last week’s win.

“We got out to 16-0 after about 15 minutes, but then we started to force the pass,” he said.

“Complacency can be a bit contagious when everyone wants to offload.”

Kemp will have a full-strength first-grade squad at his disposal in a danger sign for the rest of the Group 3 competition.

“We’re looking really healthy in first grade which is great for us,” he said.

First grade kicks off at 3.15pm.
