West Coast players started their long night of celebration by drinking beer from the AFL premiership cup moments after their epic Grand Final victory over Collingwood.
Forward Scott Lycett was filmed in footage obtained by Daily Mail Australia pouring a bottle of West End beer into the cup as teammates celebrated around him, then drinking from it.
The 25-year-old then poked out his tongue at the player filming the stunt, while team officials warned the players they needed to be on stage for official celebration in a few minutes.

The Eagles then donned white shirt with their jerseys worn over the top and made their way to official celebrations, high-fiving adoring fans as they walked through the crowd.
They made their way to the stage at the centre of the MCG where they danced as the crowd cheered, and several players made speeches.
Earlier the players celebrated on the field in the minutes after winning, with their families including numerous young children joining them and playing with their premiership medals.

The mood was completely different in the Collingwood camp as the heartbreaking loss in the final minute of the game left players in tears on the field.
The tearful Magpies players were soon after locked in a sombre post-game meeting, and had to tell dozens of their family and friends waiting in a nearby room to be quiet.
Collingwood president Eddie Maguire was also shattered by the loss, seen looking sad in the crowd after the final siren sounded, while coach Nathan Buckley put his head in his hands.
Earlier in the week, McGuire was filmed with Magpies fans out the front of their training ground, holding a cake, a reference to the line in his club’s song: ‘Oh, the premiership’s a cake walk.’

West Coast’s celebrations were hard earned after a battle for the ages against Collingwood to win its fourth premiership in a match hailed as one of the best Grand Finals of all time.
Collingwood shot out to a 17 point lead at quarter time, kicking the first five goals unanswered before West Coast clawed two back just before the first break.
From there they chipped away at the lead slowly before levelling the score 55-all at three-quarter time to set up a thrilling final term that was decided within the last minute.

The Magpies made a good start to the final term, kicking the first two goals and then another after West Coast responded with one of their own.
West Coast relentlessly pushed forward for much of the middle of the quarter but couldn’t score a goal, only managing to kick a series of behinds to put the score back to within a goal.
Finally West Coast took the lead with just two minutes to go and their supporters – far outnumbered by Collingwood’s – began to believe.
They had a chance to put the game away but Jack Darling fumbled the ball on the goal line. It didn’t matter as West Coast was able to hold on to the slim lead until the final siren.
