Really hope this means he's gonna be a permanent forward next year.
Short bursts in the midfield are a given and rightly so. He may even get more minutes if fitter.

The Collingwood game showed how much of a weapon he can be.

Certainly forward for the majority of time but no way a permanent forward.

Stringer looking lean. Nice. The difficult part is staying lean.

Not difficult - he’ll be absolutely fine unless he gets injured. Same as most players, he’s just one of those more prone to putting on weight. It’s all set up in preseason and he’s obviously got fit this year.

He obviously wasn’t in a great headspace when he got to Essendon and was battling back from there.

He was interviewed and said it’s a bit of calf tightness and achilles inflammation (tendonitis?). Apparently they’ve been managing it for a while.
