AFL.com.au are reporting that St Kilda recruit Jake Carlisle has been stitched up by a late change to the fixture.

Carlisle was intending to attend the wedding of his sister on March 25, with his first game for the Saints originally scheduled for the next day.

However, after the initial Round 1 release of matches, the AFL announced this morning that the St Kilda vs Melbourne game had been moved back to the Saturday - clashing with the wedding.
