“We have picked this up immediately with the AFL and can confirm that it will be an eight team finals series – the top four teams from each conference.
“This is consistent with the preferred structure put to the AFL by the AFLPA after consultation with a delegate from every club today.”
Under that structure the teams from Conference A that will play finals are North Melbourne, GWS, Brisbane and the Gold Coast Suns.
The teams from Conference B that will feature are Fremantle, Carlton, Melbourne and Collingwood.
The AFL is yet to advise how the AFLW finals will be structured.
