An angry AFL boss Gillon McLachlan has confirmed that the inaugural AFLW Grand Final will be played on the Gold Coast on saturday  afternoon as a stand alone fixture before the Q  Clash between the Lions and Suns.

The Gabba has been declared unsafe for play after turf was relaid following the Adele concerts at the start of the month.

McLachlan (pictured) says it was a disgrace that the venue could not be made ready in time for what will be a major event on the AFL calendar.
