THE partner of Collingwood’s Adam Treloar will move to Queensland after signing with the Queensland Firebirds.
Star centre Kim Ravaillion has agreed to a 10-month contract with the Brisbane-based Suncorp Super side, paving the way for a unique 2021 for the professional athlete couple.
Treloar will stay back in Melbourne where he will play for Collingwood again next season.
It’s understood Ravaillion’s pending move to Queensland to resume her netball career has prompted questions around Treloar’s future, but the midfielder remains steadfast in wanting to stay with the Pies.
Treloar was linked with a move to the Gold Coast Suns 12 months ago, but refused to entertain any prospect of a trade.
Instead, he and Ravaillion will pursue their careers 1600km apart, while flying back and forth whenever they can during their respective seasons.
Ravaillion will have family support in Brisbane, with her mum to temporarily move interstate to help out in what is a family decision.
Treloar and Ravaillion are both managed Tim Hazell of Vivid Sport Management, with the former Hawk a critical piece in the arrangement.
Ravaillion, who has represented the Australian Diamonds at international level, started her career with the Firebirds before becoming a foundation player for the Collingwood Magpies in 2017.
She sat out the 2020 season for the birth of her daughter.
