    Round 23 fixture revealed: Crows, Eagles kick off final round

    http://www.afl.com.au/news/2016-07-2...ff-final-round

    GREATER Western Sydney will have to wait to make its Friday night debut, with the AFL choosing to open round 23 with Adelaide's clash against West Coast.

    The AFL announced on Friday afternoon its line-up for the final round of the season, which had been left as a floating fixture.

    The Giants had lobbied to earn the prime time Friday night slot for their clash against North Melbourne, but will instead play on Saturday night.

    AFL unveils 'celebration of football'

    The AFL said it had chosen to fixture the Crows' clash with the Eagles at Adelaide Oval on Friday night, given it involved two top-eight teams and was "likely to have significant impact on ladder positions before the finals".

    The Giants' clash against the Kangaroos – also between two top-eight teams – was the AFL's second choice for Friday night.

    It was instead scheduled for Saturday night to give North Melbourne a seven-day break after round 22.

    The Kangaroos have had more six-day breaks than any other club this season, the League noted.

    The other key matches in round 23 are Hawthorn's clash with Collingwood on Sunday afternoon at the MCG, which could determine whether the Hawks finish in the top two.

    The Western Bulldogs face Fremantle on Sunday at Domain Stadium in what will likely be champion Docker Matthew Pavlich's farewell.

    It is understood Hawthorn and the Bulldogs asked for their respective matches to be played on Sunday.

    This post was more than likely SC based.
    If in doubt, assume it was.

    I think Hawks and Dogs might be aware that with the week off before finals, you are better playing later in the round in that it gives the greatest rest from the previous week.
