Adelaide forward Tyson Stengle has been granted permission by the AFL to train with  SANFL club Woodville-West Torrens after being stood down from official club duties by the Crows, per AFL.com.au.

Stengle is currently the focus of an investigation into a photo of the 22-year-old in possession of drugs.

This incident comes shortly after both he and new Saints recruit Brad Crouch were sanctioned for a similar incident at the end of the 2020 season.

The pair were caught with illicit substances in September and were suspended by the AFL. Stengle received a four-game ban for conduct unbecoming.

Stengle missed four games for separate incidents last season as well, in April he missed four games for drink driving.

Stengle will now train with Woodville-West Torrens in a bid to regain the trust from both on-field and off-field hierarchies as his future seemingly dangles by a thread.

The Crows released a statement on Monday night.

“Adelaide has granted permission for Tyson Stengle to train with SANFL club Woodville-West Torrens during his stand down from Crows-related duties.

“The Club today received approval from the AFL and Stengle is free to train with the Eagles effective immediately.

“He has been on stand down since late last year due to an off-field matter and the Club continues to work closely with the League and AFL Players Association, as well as Stengle’s management.

“The Club acknowledges there is significant media and public interest, and will continue to provide more information in relation to this matter as soon as it becomes available.”
