David Mundy and his Dockers teammates have let their hair down in Melbourne after being eliminated from the finals by Collingwood.
Fremantle’s season was ended by a rampant Magpies by 20 points at the MCG on Saturday night, but the players have plenty to celebrate after breaking a seven-year finals drought and producing stunning performances throughout 2022.
In a video posted to Nat Fyfe’s, who travelled with the squad despite being injured, Instagram, at least a dozen players, including Lachie Schultz, Will Brodie, Griffin Logue and Luke Ryan, can be seen chanting “Mundy” outside what looks like a pub on Sunday night.
The chants quickly turn to cheers as the retiring champion is hoisted onto someone’s shoulders.
He joins in the cheers and swings his arms as if pumping up a crowd.
Mundy’s career also came to a close on Saturday after 376 AFL matches, a feat that puts him eighth in all-time games played across AFL and VFL history.
It was an emotional scene for the 37-year-old after the game as he spoke to his son Hudson, who flew over with the team, and was chaired off to moving applause even from the Collingwood faithful.
Part of the team is expected back in Perth on Monday night, while others will come back later.
