The AFL decided to schedule the Richmond vs North Melbourne match for Friday since it’s the only fixture of the final round which is being contested by two top-eight teams.

The current league- leading Fremantle Dockers play on Saturday afternoon to make sure they can get back to Perth that night following their match in Adelaide to Perth that evening. The Western Bulldogs are also playing the Brisbane Lions at the Gabba in the day to give them adequate traveling time.
