The Western Bulldogs’ season is still alive, after the reigning premiers enjoyed a 20-point win over a rugged Carlton at the MCG on Sunday afternoon.
The Bulldogs started slowly, with the Blues kicking the opening three goals of the match, before Luke Beveridge’s men got back in the game and proved too polished for the inexperienced Blues.
Stringer pulled up holding his left hamstring early in the second quarter and sat out the remainder of the match with ice on his hamstring.

The 23-year-old has a history of hamstring injuries and early reports suggest he could miss three to four weeks of football.
Coach Luke Beveridge confirmed post-match Stringer has suffered a hamstring injury, but it unsure of its severity.
“Stringer has injured his hamstring, but don’t know the prognosis just yet,” Beveridge said.
Stringer has played 14 games this season, kicking 24 goals.
