The rescheduled AFLW qualifying final fixture between Brisbane and Collingwood has been confirmed for Sunday March 27, pushing back the preliminary and grand finals.
The match was postponed late last week after a positive COVID-19 result at the Collingwood Magpies sent players and staff into isolation, reducing the team to fewer than 16 players.
With the Magpies unable to field a team, the AFLW postponed the clash and has on Monday afternoon advised it will be played this weekend, delaying all other finals fixtures by a week.
Brisbane will host the match at The Gabba, with the opening bounce set for 12:05pm local / 1:05pm AEDT on Sunday, March 27.

THE ROAD TO THE 2022 AFLW FINALS: SIX TEAMS SET TO BATTLE IT OUT FOR PREMIERSHIP GLORY
Despite the change to the second qualifying final, the first between the North Melbourne and Fremantle Dockers went ahead at Arden St on Saturday afternoon.
It was an even contest until the second half, where the Dockers pulled away to a dominant win and set up a preliminary final clash with the Adelaide Crows.
That preliminary final will have to wait another week, though, with both the Adelaide Crows and Melbourne Demons' preliminary finals rescheduled for Saturday, April 2.
It also means the grand final is pushed back a week, now set to be held in an afternoon time slot on Saturday, April 9.
The highest-ranked sides of the two preliminary final winners will host that premiership decider.
