Collingwood players have been soaking up their premiership glory after a thrilling four-point win over the Brisbane Lions in a classic Grand Final.
It was a triumph for captain Darcy Moore, who was presented the premiership cup by his father Peter, a Magpies legend who never managed to win a Grand Final.
Josh and Nick Daicos also celebrated with their dad Peter, while veterans Scott Pendlebury and Steele Sidebottom set a new record for the longest gap (13 years) between their first and second premierships.
Jordan De Goey kicked a crucial late goal and in a classy family tribute, in the change rooms the gun midfielder placed his premiership medal around the neck of his grandma, who is fighting terminal cancer.
Ruckman Darcy Cameron was living his best life, belting out Horses alongside Daryl Braithwaite at a post-game function, dancing the night away with sunglasses on.
Forward Brody Mihocek celebrated at the MCG with friend and Sydney Swans player Robbie Fox.
The pair, who played junior footy in Tasmania, embraced and many fans noticed Fox was wearing a Magpies jersey, supposedly because he was fulfilling a bet he had with Mihocek.
But not everyone was happy with Fox wearing a rival club’s colours.
One fan wrote on X: “It’s fine to support a mate but as long as Fox is on the swans payroll the only guernsey he should wear is the swans.”
Another said: “Don’t think he should be wearing the jumper while on another teams list…??!!!”
But Swans fans seemed more concerned with co-captain Callum Mills, who will be sidelined for months after badly injuring his shoulder in an accident on Mad Monday.
“Better than wrecking your shoulder at mad Monday,” one said.
It was a day to remember for Collingwood coach Craig McRae, who revealed his wife gave birth to a baby girl named Maggie the morning of the Grand Final.
