Agreed, but I don’t know how they could guarantee this under the current playoff format. They re-seed after the Wildcard round.
I believe that it was Peter King who said that the Monday winner would definitely play on the following Sunday. It’s not hard coded anywhere that I’m aware of what seed hosts on what day in round two.
Also, there’s the additional rest two teams who would have played on Saturday will now get by playing on Monday. With only one bye week and an added game, this has to be attractive to most teams….
