After spending four years together at Greater Western Sydney, Adam Treloar and Will Hoskin-Elliott are now enjoying each other’s company closer to home.
Already a star at the Magpies, Treloar is one of many impressed by the form of Hoskin-Elliott during the early rounds of the 2017 season.
The utility has averaged 18.5 disposals per game, and leads Collingwood’s goal-kicking tally with 7.1 after four games.
Treloar puts Hoskin-Elliott’s form down to a more enjoyable lifestyle back in his home state.
“I think for him… it was just to be home and around his family,” Treloar told Mark Allen on Collingwood Media’s vodcast ‘Sports Galore’.
“He had so much talent up in Sydney, but it was so harsh with injuries and not being able to get into the team because they were so talented.
“He came down here, had a fresh start and now he’s around his friends and family… he’s just happier in general and he’s playing some extremely good footy.”

Despite being close friends, Treloar and Hoskin-Elliott struggled to share time on the football field during their time at the Giants.
Both played 20 games each in 2014, however that tally was the only season Hoskin-Elliott managed over 11 games in his five seasons in Blacktown.
His ability, while obvious to Treloar, is only just starting to be realised by the wider AFL community.
“Whenever the ball is in his vicinity, he either wins it or halves it,”
“He’s so talented.”
The impressive form of Hoskin-Elliott was just one of many talking points on the weekly episode of Sports Galore. You can listen to the vodcast in the module below.
