Triple M Footy’s Brian Taylor believes Collingwood superstar Adam Treloar will return on Saturday night to face West Coast at Optus Stadium in the second qualifying final.
Treloar has been sidelined for over two months after suffering a serious double hamstring injury against Carlton in round 14.
BT said the Magpies desperately need the likes of Treloar and Jeremy Howe to return to the side because they have too many players that are “not quite ready” to play at finals level.
“I don’t think they can beat West Coast over there,” BT told Triple M’s Rush Hour during The Midweek Rub.
“I just think with all their players back, West Coast have got everyone back ... playing for a home prelim final.”
Damian Barrett said he wouldn’t risk Treloar and despite the game being in Perth with Collingwood still missing a host of key players, James Brayshaw isn’t writing them off.
“They will dial up the pressure,” JB said of Collingwood.
“They’ve been fantastic in the back half of this year with pressure and pressure keeps you in and wins you finals and I’m not sure West Coast like it.”
