Swans return home with Premiership cup

Swans players and coaching staff return home to the SCG following their epic Grand Final victory over Hawthorn.

About 3000 Swans supporters attended a presentation on Sunday morning at Albert Park.

The team were about half an hour late and were showing the effects of a big night's celebrating.

Ruckman Shane Mumford missed the team bus and arrived a few minutes later, wearing his match-day guernsey and bright green shoes.

Mumford jumped on stage to a big cheer and let out a big yell, much to the amusement of his team-mates.

Many Melbourne-based Swans fans followed South Melbourne before they relocated to Sydney in 1982 and coach John Longmire thanked them for their support.

"We are so lucky having a club in Sydney, but also real homeland support in Melbourne," he said.

After they were presented on stage, the players spent several minutes signing autographs and having photos taken before heading to the airport.
