Fremantle Dockers AFL stars enjoy their Mad Monday with a few drinks at a hotel pool, but there isn’t a beer in sight – and one player would’ve woken up VERY sore and sorry!

- Fremantle players opted for colourful cocktails instead of the usual beers
- Lobb forgot to put on sunscreen and was seen sporting a severe sunburn
The Fremantle Dockers have traded beers for cocktails as they marked the end of their season in Perth – but even if Rory Lobb only had one drink during the celebrations, he’s guaranteed to have woken up feeling very sorry for himself afterwards.
The AFL stars were seen gathering poolside at a luxurious resort-style hotel on Saturday, without a single beer in sight as several of the stars opted for brightly coloured mixed drinks instead.
But none were as brightly coloured as Lobb, who appeared to have completely forgotten to apply sunscreen and was sporting what looked certain to be a severe sunburn as a result.
He was seen clad in a pair of Speedos, cocktail in hand as he talked and had a dip with Andrew Brayshaw, who was also enjoying one of the beverages.

The pair were joined by teammates including Will Brodie, Karl Worner, Neil Erasmus and Lloyd Meek, with all the Dockers crowding into the pool at one stage.
Midfielder Caleb Serong gave Lobb a lesson in being sun smart as he was seen getting around in a maroon shirt before going for a swim.
Lobb made a request to be traded to the Western Bulldogs on September 14 but the club rejected it. His teammates Griffin Logue and Blake acres also announced that they want to switch to different teams.
The Dockers said Lobb was too important to their structure for them to let him go.

Fremantle finished fifth on the ladder with 15 wins, six losses and a draw, and came out victorious in one of the most thrilling games of the finals series when they came back from a huge deficit to beat the Bulldogs at Optus stadium in their elimination final.
The Dogs were up by as much as 41 points and kept Freo goalless until the 20-minute mark of the second quarter, but the home team kicked 10 of the next 11 goals to run out 31-point winners.
However, they couldn’t pull the same trick against Collingwood at the MCG the following week, enduring a 20-point loss to end a season that had many of their fans dreaming of ‘Flagmantle’ winning their first premiership.
