Collingwood captain Darcy Moore swapped the premiership cup for a bow and arrow as player-only celebrations following Saturday’s epic AFL grand final victory spilt into Mad Monday.
Players filtered into a watering hole in Richmond en masse and dressed up in costumes still basking in their premiership glory, with Moore looking like Legolas, the elf prince from Lord of the Rings with bow and arrow.
Defender Isaac Quaynor was Lewis Hamilton, Taylor Adams was Channel 9 presenter Tony Jones and Jack Ginnivan dressed as a jockey, having spent grand final eve at the races.
Veteran star Scott Pendlebury was among of a crew of players dressed as gangsters from hit show Peaky Blinders and was revelling in what had been a golden morning with his kids.
“Yeah really good, obviously the voice is gone but (it’s been) amazing,” he said.
“Taking my kids to school, everyone saying well done and my son wanted to show the medal to his teacher and the whole class had photos with it and things like that, so it was really cool.”
In an ode to his journey from the scrap heap to premiership player, Oleg Markov dressed in full Carlton kit with the letters “SSP” on the back of his jumper.
He was set to train at Carlton before Collingwood signed him in summer during the supplementary selection period (SSP) and now he has a premiership medallion.
Big man Mason Cox wore a full dinosaur costume and Jack Crisp went full Jackie Moon from basketball flick Semi-Pro as the Magpie party continued.
