Western Bulldogs vs St Kilda, horns celebration, what does it mean, Luke Beveridge press conference, stats

The Western Bulldogs took off (albeit slightly) on goal and post-match celebrations with their opening game against St. Kilda at Marvel Stadium on Friday night.

Several dog players were seen marking horns on their foreheads after kicking off goals, many of them in the opening three quarters before the final score of the Saints 28 points.

Speaking after the game, Ed Richard, a half-back gunman, said the meaning behind him was related to the Cape Bison, which helps protect each other in the herd.

Geary’s emotional speech to his teammates | 01:55

“The theme of the week, we talked about buffalo.

“Just like how they protect the packaging and we go out there and wait for each other.

“This was something we were poor in Sydney so this week was focused on the Saints.”

Richard added that the theme was coached by coach Luke Beverge with team leaders.

After the game, the subject was asked about the subject, but Beverridge kept his mouth shut.

“We’re not going to let you get in on the topic regularly, but we had a little bit of a Cape Buffalo theme tonight, that’s all I can say.”

Still, it is safe to say that the message did not stop at least for some players.

Bailey Dale was one of them when asked about the post-match celebration.

“I really have no idea, Bevo comes up with so many different themes,” he told Fox Foot.

“He brings a new one every week and there are some guys who don’t know anything but we run with him.

“He is very creative. They are not Chicago bulls, I just don’t know anything in the wild.

“Of course I didn’t even get it but we took it anyway.”
