Not only did Treloar average 21 matches per year for the past 3 years, he’s averaged 20.4 matches per year across his entire career. How durable is that? Turning 24 in season #6, Treloar is primed to play some of the best football of his career.
2016 Form: *****
Treloar hardly missed a beat in his first season with the Pies, racking up over 30 possessions in 5 of his first 6 matches. Across the season he recorded 16 tonnes from his 22 games and he only failed to record another 5 tonnes due to clangers and poor disposal efficiency. Amazingly he averaged 31 possessions and 6 tackles per match in a brilliant year!
In 2016 many players joined a frustrating new club including those who racked up 30+ possessions yet didn’t score a tonne. Three times Treloar managed that crappy feat in 2016!
All up he scored in the 80s on four occasions to go with a 73 (from 31 possessions) and a 98. Everything else was a century.
Treloar racks up enough touches to go large but he hasn’t made it a habit yet. To date he scores a monster total 2-3 times per year including a 169 in 2016, a 157 in 2015 and 176 in 2014 but he’s got a lot of room for improvement.
Due to his age and deep midfields at Collingwood and GWS, Treloar has rarely been tagged so the sample size is small. Twice Curnow tagged him in 2016, once he tonned up, once he scored an 81 from 23 possessions and 5 tackles. If you’re an owner, pray that teams continue to focus on Pendlebury (and maybe Wells) for another year.
Unless he goes full beast-mode, Treloar will be lucky to increase his output by more than 10 points per game (a total of 121 or more per game). Feel free to tell me I’m wrong.
Treloar was really only marked down because of wasted opportunities in 2016. If he can turn those sub-100 scores from 30 possession games into consistent tonnes as they should be, he will turn into an uber-gun with a high ceiling.
Verdict: My motto for 2017 is: Durability is key. For that reason I am keen on Treloar who is young enough to have upside and rarely misses a game. Now watch Buckley start him in a forward pocket!
