Star Fremantle midfielder Caleb Serong is hoping giant striker Josh Treacy will get a chance to showcase his ‘elite’ talents in the club’s revamped attacking line-up this year.
The departure of Rory Lobb and swingman Griffin Logue has left Fremantle with two holes to fill and Dockers have plenty of options.
The presence of two-time Brownlow medalist Nat Fyfe as a constant forward will help bolster Fremantle’s attack while Matt Taberner is fully fit again and ready to start the current season.
New recruit Luke Jackson is expected to spend a long time up front, while Treacy hopes he has room in attack as well.
Treacy, a 92-pound, 195-centimetre forward – also nicknamed “The Big Cohuna” after the area in the country of Victoria he is from – played in just four AFL games last season, down from 15 in 2021 .
His strong pre-season campaign has boosted his chances of a call-up for Sunday’s clash against St Kilda at Marvel Stadium and Serong is pushing the 20-year-old’s cause.
“I love Josh [he’s a] Country Victorian,” Serong said of Treacy.
“His ability to attack the ball both in the air and on the ground is elite.
“You just love it… to see him on the run calling for it.
