Treloar is a silky skilled right-footer who started his AFL career playing in Western Sydney for the Giants. A creative and determined onballer, he arrived at the Giants in 2011 as a 17-year-old underage recruit from the Dandenong Stingrays. After earning an AFL Rising Star nomination in his debut season, Treloar finished fifth in the Giants' best-and-fairest count in 2013. It was a position he improved in his next two seasons at the expansion club, finishing fourth in 2014 and second in 2015. After four seasons in orange and charcoal, Treloar opted to return home to Victoria prior to the 2016 season, instantly becoming a star of the Collingwood midfield. He polled 21 Brownlow Medal votes and ran second in the Copeland Trophy in his first season at the Holden Centre, and followed it with a third placing in 2017. Now aged 24, the sky is the limit.

Season By Season

Season By Season

Treloar reaffirmed his decision to make the move to Collingwood with a fine second season, missing only one game and finishing third in the best-and-fairest.

While his year was perhaps without a shade of the x-factor that saw him poll 24 Brownlow votes in 2016, Treloar remained a consistent performer throughout.

He averaged 29.9 disposals, 6.3 tackles and 5.3 clearances, and polled seven Brownlow votes in the first five rounds, including three in the loss to Essendon on ANZAC Day.

The 24-year-old never dipped below 21 disposals and made a contribution on the scoreboard in all bar four games.

Now, with 122 games behind him, Treloar is on the verge of his footballing prime.

Season By Season

The hype surrounding Treloar’s move to the Holden Centre was enormous, and it was going to take something special for him to live up to the expectations. Fortunately, he did all that and more in a year that saw him nominated in the AFL’s 40-man All-Australian squad.

Ongoing questions of ‘will he, won’t he?’ plagued Treloar’s pre-season as external parties questioned whether the high-profile recruit would be fit to take the field in round one. He made his first appearance of the season in a VFL practice match at the Holden Centre, and a week later was ready to make the step to the big time.

From here, he played all 22 games, leading the club for disposals, tackles, clearances, inside 50s and bounces, and establishing himself as the key ball winner. Dominant games were almost too regular to keep track of. Treloar was best on ground against Brisbane (round eight), Fremantle (round 14), Gold Coast (round 22) and Hawthorn (round 23) and finished the season as Collingwood’s leading vote-getter on Brownlow Medal night.

There were numerous storylines to go with the impressive performances. A few cheeky words exchanged with Richmond’s Trent Cotchin in round two and a trip back to his former club GWS in round 16 were just to name a few.

But whatever Collingwood paid for Treloar at the beginning of the 2016 season paid dividends as the new marquee Magpie played, and impressed in all 22 games of his first year in Black and White.

Season By Season

Treloar enjoyed a career-best season in 2015, averaging 27.5 disposals per match and kicking 14 goals. He accumulated more disposals than any other Giants player and only played one game in which he had less than 20 touches (19 v Gold Coast). The midfielder battled groin soreness at various times throughout the season but still managed to contribute, finishing second in the Kevin Sheedy Medal which recognises the Giants’ Club Champion.

Season By Season

Starting the year playing a key role in the round one victory over the Swans, he maintained that level for virtually the entire year. Blessed with a combination of pace and strength, he averaged almost 28 touches and six marks a game, finishing fourth in the best-and-fairest. Driven to succeed, he played in all six wins last season and is a key to more triumphs in the years ahead.

Season By Season

Treloar’s second season at the top level in 2013 was nothing short of sensational. Averaging a team-high 24 possessions across his 20 games, he finished fifth in the best-and-fairest and showed a noticeable lift in maturity on and off the field. Fiercely determined to help the Giants start winning regularly, he is star on the rise.

Season By Season

Hailed alongside Dylan Shiel and Jeremy Cameron among the most talented youngsters from the club’s 2011 access selections, Treloar lacked confidence early in the season. But he soon settled into the midfield and demonstrated his outstanding pace and skills. He kicked 12 goals in his 19 games and earned a Rising Star nomination for his stunning 37 touches and nine marks against Collingwood in round 18.

Season By Season

Another Greater Western Sydney youngster hailing from the Dandenong Stingrays, Treloar is a versatile midfielder with exceptional skills. From Noble Park in Melbourne, he can also shift forward and kick goals and is driven to succeed at AFL level.
