As a tough, hard working footballer who typically racked up nhigh disposal numbers, Craig Treleven gave East Fremantle fine service in 120 WAFL games between 1992 and 1995 and in 2002-3. In between these two stints he played successfully with Hawthorn in the AFL. Treleven started on the interchange bench when East Fremantle beat South Fremantle in the 1992 WAFL Grand Final, and played across half back when West Perth was vanquished two seasons later.

Capable of playing more or less anywhere, he enjoyed a particularly noteworthy season in 1995 when he shared the Lynn Medal for the Sharks' fairest and best with skipper Steve Malaxos (amazingly, for the second time), won the Simpson Medal for his display for Western Australia against Queensland, and capped things off by claiming the Sandover Medal with a near record 43 votes. Craig Treleven played twice for Western Australia, at state league level in the aforementioned Queensland game, and in a state of origin match against the Allies.
