Geelong stars go over the top for Wacky Wednesday

There was the royal family complete with Joel Selwood holding a baby, Sandy from Grease who struck a remarkable resemblance to Corey Enright and defensive trio Andrew Mackie, Jared Rivers and Tom Lonergan as the Three Amigos. And much more.

A policeman with a sniffer dog, a ruckman in a nappy, and “old fossils” Max Rooke and Joel Corey barely able to make it to the bar with their walking sticks. And still more.

Some of the biggest names in the game also managed to drop in, like a fake Gary Ablett in full Suns gear and a Brownlow around his neck and even Warwick Capper… or was it Steve Johnson in a wig and tight shorts?

The season might have finished a week early for Geelong, but no one puts a full stop on a year better than the Cats.

Cats players, old and young, again raised the bar with their costume choice for Wednesday’s end-of-season celebrations at the Lord of the Isles Hotel in Geelong.

Kindly, the media was allowed in for a brief period to capture the atmosphere and have a chat, although maybe Tom Hawkins wished they weren’t.

“Obviously everyone dresses up really well, so there is a bit of pressure on everyone,” the key forward says in front of the television cameras.

Then asked who he thought was best-on-ground in terms of costume, Hawkins was forced to respond while trying to duck cheese slices being flung at his head by James Podsiadly.

“So far? The day is still pretty young, but I like Capper and also the Lego Man is pretty cool,” he says.

Now for a serious question: how is the injured back, does it need surgery? “I’m really not sure yet, we’ll explore all that, everyone has been away from the footy club…” Hawkins answers before the loud roar of “Capper!” drowns him out and he realises Johnson has climbed on his injured back to take a hanger.
