After working his way back to playing after a horror run with injury, Trengove was knocked out in the rst quarter of his return game in the VFL. The season improved from there and he started to put pressure on the selectors to pick him. They nally did, with Trengove running out against Hawthorn in round 11 for his rst game since round two, 2014. Trengove, who has twice had surgery to x a fracture in his foot, played two more games before returning to the VFL. Melbourne gave him a one-year contract extension and the club clings to the hope he can discover his best football again.
