The Geelong Cats celebrate their triumph over the Sydney Swans in the 2022 AFL Grand Final in wild scenes

Geelong star Jeremy Cameron has led the party after the club’s 81-point win in the final against Sydney; with his winner’s medal last seen hanging around the neck of one of his cows.

Such was the Cats’ dominance in their 81-point win that commentators noted that the third quarter was “party time”; and it seems it went on until at least 4:20 for some players.

Cameron, who lives on a farm just outside of Geelong, shared his wild celebrations with his more than 57,000 Instagram followers, with the party lasting until at least 4:30am.

No doubt the lad from the small rural town of Dartmouth in north-east Victoria is bringing his Best on Ground nomination to the celebrations off the field.

After the team presented the trophy to fans outside the MCG and held an official club event, Cameron continued to celebrate at his farm with some happy pals.

In a barn on his farm that has been converted into a bar, Cameron posted a video of him and four friends, including former Cats trucker Dawson Simpson, appearing to raise beer glasses.

He filmed one of his friends pouring a beer from a tap installed in the converted barn and saying, “It might be late tomorrow.” The video was timestamped at 4.18am.

From there it got even wilder.

The next video on Cameron’s Instagram story showed him hilariously chasing after a small herd of calves and admitting “we did something stupid here”.

“Can I have my medal back?” Cameron asks the unsuspecting cow before suggesting she carry it on for the night.

‘Let him have it for the night, get out there, enjoy it, it’s for all of us.’

No doubt Cameron and many of his Cats team-mates will have a headache this morning after the Premiership win.

That didn’t stop the indefatigable star, who scored twice in the Cats win: he got up as early as 7am and fired what appeared to be a pint in hand in front of a Geelong-decorated fire pit.

Earlier in the night, Cameron posted a couple of selfies enjoying the club’s celebrations on the team bus and the official event.

He was also seen drinking from the Premiership trophy in a video posted to Instagram by team-mate Brad Close.

Ireland’s Zach Tuohy, who played his 250th game and was sent off, was also in the middle of the celebrations.

He posted a video of AFL legend Eddie Betts, now an assistant coach with the Cats, wearing stylish sunglasses, calling it “GOAT (greatest of all time) things.”

Tuohy was also seen partying with fellow countryman Mark O’Connor after the game, with the latter posting a recording of the two along with the caption, “Far from home, mon the town.”

Despite the huge gain of 81 points, there was a certain heartache in the Geelong rooms.

20-year-old winger Max Holmes was sidelined at the last minute after suffering a hamstring injury in the group final.

He reportedly passed a fitness test but couldn’t be sure he would make it in the biggest match of the year – so Geelong opted to bring in O’Connor instead.

Holmes was class and showed leadership beyond his years as he dealt with heartbreak stoically; before taking to social media to thank the football world and Cats fans for all their support.

The Cats lingered long after the final siren on the sacred MCG turf and understandably wanted the moment to last as long as possible.

They then moved away from the ‘G to Yarra Park where a legion of fans awaited their beloved heroes.

The players took the stage and posed with the trophy for a group photo before Joel Selwood and Norm Smith Medalist Isaac Smith went to the microphone to speak to their supporters.

Cameron praised the influence of the rabid Cats fans after the game and said they are the reason he plays Footy.

“I’ve been mentioning it all year but having the crowd back but it’s one of the reasons I love playing football,” he said.

“I hated not having crowds. It sucked. Seeing everyone back in the G Swans fans… that’s great and the family is even better.

The team will present the trophy to their fans down in Geelong this morning, where the sore heads will ease for a moment as the entire ‘steel city’ chants their names.
