Cameron’s plea: don’t go Treloar
GREATER Western Sydney coach Leon Cameron hopes star midfielder Adam Treloar will stick with the club after they produced a record-breaking effort yesterday to complete a stunning 170-point turnaround in a week.
The Giants kicked 15 goals to three after halftime to canter to an 81-point home win over a vastly understrength Carlton at Spotless Stadium.
The Blues’ heavy loss came in front of incoming head coach Brendon Bolton.
“He’s pretty keen for me to coach out the season although I wouldn’t have minded if he had have taken over at some stage,” quipped interim coach John Barker.
Carlton had 19 players unavailable and the lack of depth was ruthlessly exposed in the second half.
Jeremy Cameron kicked seven goals, all after halftime, to swell his tally for the year to 61 as the Giants romped to a 20.12 (132) to 7.9 (51) victory.
It was the Giants’ 11th win of the season and their biggestever winning margin, eclipsing their previous best of 78 set against Carlton in Melbourne this season.
Flogged by 89 points by Sydney last week, GWS kicked a club-record 20 goals and finished three points shy of their biggest-ever score, also achieved in the early season blowout of the Blues.
Treloar, who is being tipped to leave GWS, kicked three goals and tallied 27 touches.
Cameron said Treloar loved the club and had a big decision to make but disputed the midfielder was definitely leaving.
“We’re confident we’re still right in the picture,” he said.
