I’m expecting a Menzel type result out of this kid, just much less expensive. Still, I trust the talent ID guys to have seen something worth getting him across for.
Even if that does happen, like Menzel, it's worth a shot.

Played with him for 2/3 years, you wont see many players that get more 'out the back' goals and goals which just seem to fall in his lap but that's his gift, he gets in the right spots and looks alive around ground balls
That pretty much describes Eddie Betts at the same age.

Pretty sure all reports had Menzel coming across on a 3 year deal.
Yeah but he was a first round pick who had shown something at AFL level.

Stengle is a rookie who has shown nothing at AFL level, if we are throwing out 3 year deals for this type of player that we aren’t sure on, well then that is very poor recruiting.

The point was that Menzel was only around for 2. Stengle may have a similar contract structure.

Good highlights package. Knows how to use the ball. He doesn't look too slow to me. Has a few tricks up his sleeve also.
He’s similar to Eddie with pace, his first couple of steps are lightening with elite agility which allows to find space easily and track someone to tackle in close quarters. Essentially their general play tends to be done at a higher speed than most.

In a 20+meter sprint though, they get mown down a bit and lose that edge.
