Following this week's debacle over the venue for the AFLW Grand Final, the game has taken another 'blow'.
The women's showpiece fixture is now not only a curtain raiser to an AFL game - but also a NEAFL practice match.
On Twitter, the NEAFL account made the announcement that the Gold Coast reserves vs Brisbane Lions reserves game will be squeezed in between the Grand Final and the AFL fixture.
The official start time for the women will be 2pm, while the NEAFL game is scheduled for 4:40pm.
The QCLash will be the next game on Metricon at 7:05pm rounding out the triple-header.
