ESSENDON great Tim Watson says Western Bulldogs forward Jake Stringer is no “flash in the pan” and his “best is still to come” amid reports the premiership star will be put on the trade table.
Channel 9 last night reported the Bulldogs and Stringer are not happy with each other and are “prepared to explore and test the market on him” this trade period.
The network said other clubs were aware of the situation and were preparing to draft offers for the 2016 premiership player, who managed just 24 goals this year after totals of 42 and 56 the previous two seasons.
Not gonna lie. I’m a huge fan of Stringer. I think he’s a match winner and given this we could get for less than he is worth. Would also allow us to shift Hooker back to the back line and reform the best defensive duo in the game. We should be in this one.
But the mystery box could be anything, AD. It could even be a boat! More likely, however, it will be a medium-sized forward who will be too unfit to run through the middle and will have the ball kicked over his head repeatedly when he is ‘resting’ forward. You know how much we’ve always wanted one of those!
