Switch of games could be on

The AFL is considering switching the order of games in round 22 to give some finalists an extra day's rest before the first weekend of the post-season.

AFL chief executive Andrew Demetriou said on Friday the AFL was considering changing the schedule to accommodate St Kilda, the Western Bulldogs and Collingwood, who all play on the Sunday.

Those three clubs are a good chance to finish in the top four.

The Saints-Melbourne game and Collingwood-Bulldogs clashes could be played earlier on the weekend, which would give the sides a longer break.

Matches between West Coast and Richmond (Friday night), and Port Adelaide and North Melbourne (Saturday night) could be possible switches.

Of those four teams, Port are the only side still with a chance of reaching the finals.
