The footy players who participated in a sordid sex act which was filmed by teammates at wild Mad Monday celebrations last month won’t be returning to the Aussie Rules club for the 2023 season.
In scenes which generated headlines around the world, vision emerged of division-three players from Glen Waverley Football Club gathered at a public bar in Melbourne.
One player in the clip performed a sex act on another after losing a bet, with their teammates heard cheering loudly in the background.
The vision is understood to have taken place at the team’s post-season celebrations on August 14 – after they were relegated to division four in their local competition.
In an open letter from the club’s committee on Friday, it was revealed ‘players involved in the incident will not be returning’ to the Eastern Football Netball League (EFNL) Division 4 outfit in 2023.

The club committee at Glen Waverley has acted, confirming all those involved in the incident will not be welcome back in 2023
The letter read: ‘The club committee has been working together to address the broad range of concerns of our members and stakeholders’, with a meeting involving the league held to ‘discuss and address the events.’
‘An initial meeting of all committee members and a large proportion of the senior playing group was held to discuss and address the events. EFNL board members, the club’s major sponsor, life members and members of the player’s (sic) families were in attendance at this meeting, where the general details, impacts and response to the incident were discussed.
‘The players involved in the video made statements of apology. At the conclusion of this process we confirm the following … the players involved in the incident will not be returning to the GWFNC.’
The club said it was ‘committed to every effort in rebuilding the senior club in 2023 based on values and standards that the club community can be proud of’, adding it would continue to invest in its junior program.
Professional counselling support ‘was arranged to assist the players involved in dealing with the impact to their mental health and wellbeing’ following the meeting, the Herald Sun reported.
Pub goers at the venue in Melbourne on August 14 said the footy group smashed glasses inside and outside the pub, vaped indoors and stole drinks from behind the bar
Patrons who were at the venue during the celebrations said the rowdy group smashed glasses inside and outside the pub, vaped indoors, stole drinks from behind the bar and danced on tables.
They also clamed bathrooms were damaged and covered in vomit and players were abusive to other customers.
At the time, club senior president Matt Hollard said all players from the team had been summoned to an emergency meeting where the issue would be dealt with.
He said the team decided to address what happened as a group given how many players were at the unofficial end of season celebrations.
Hollard added Glen Waverley club officials were in contact with the players in the video and they were ‘OK’.
‘While we’re frustrated with what they’ve done, we need to make sure they’re OK as they work through it and work on themselves,’ he said. ‘We’ll be acting on it and there will be consequences.’
Hollard also stated the unwanted coverage became ‘almost unbearable and unrelenting’.
