Gillon McLachlan calls the AFL Round 11

AFL CEO Gillan McClachlan has announced significant changes to this season’s Round 11.

Speaking to reporters Thursday afternoon, McLachlan revealed that the Gold Coast Sun’s Hawthorne Hawks fight, which was originally to be played in Darwin, has been moved to the SCG. It will still play Saturday night at: 40:40 (AEST).

The Richmond Tigers’ encounter with the Adelaide Crows has been moved from MCG to Sydney’s GIANTS Stadium, but is also scheduled for 1:10 (AEST).

“We have nine games ahead in the planned game ups,” McClachlan said.

The other change in the pre-determined round is for Sunday’s game against Port Adelaide against Fremantle, which was postponed to 20:20 (AEST) which allows the umpire to travel from Western Australia.

This means the top two-table clash between Western Bulldogs and Melbourne will take place at Marvel Stadium on Friday night, even if the Demons players visited the COVID-1 hot hotspot before taking part in training; All DES players provided provide a negative test for the virus. Although the roof of Marvel Stadium will be open for the first time this season, to comply with Victorian government protocols.
