Unwanted Crows forward Tyson Stengle had his contract terminated by Adelaide after a series of off-field indiscretions, returning to play at SANFL side Woodville-West Torrens in 2021.

The 22-year-old played 14 games for the Crows over two seasons after leaving Richmond in 2018.

With a promising run of SANFL form, there are already some Victorian clubs that have shown interest in recruiting the young forward.

Here are five suitable landing spots for clubs that could do with an extra small forward.


1. Geelong

Geelong list manager Stephen Wells - speaking to SEN - said the Cats are interested in Stengle.

"We think he's had a terrific period with Woodville-West Torrens, in a premiership team," he said.

"We do have some interest in Tyson. We haven't committed to him yet, it's not just us who want him.

"He'll have to make that decision himself."

The Cats will need to have one eye on the future, while also remaining a premiership chance in 2022. Tyson Stengle looks set to help achieve both goals by slotting into a small forward line that has an ageing Luke Daulhaus and Gary Rohan.

Tyson Stengle holds a close bond to Eddie Betts, who has just joined the Geelong coaching staff.
