Adelaide

Tyson Stengle

A troubled past 12 months have left the goal-sneak’s future at West Lakes in the balance, and should Stengle be granted a return to playing for the Crows in 2021 he will hope to make all the club’s worries worth their weight.

The skill an knowhow is there for the 22-year-old, but with a four-game suspension awaiting him along with pending further punishments, 2021 could easily become the final season we see the craft forward.

Should he make his way back into the side, substantial improvement will be required to gain a passing mark from the club.
