Runs show in win
FEssendon Bombers
June 20, 2021
Stringer scored four goals and one behind to go with 29 disposals (17 kicks, 12 handballs) and made seven tackles during Sunday's 86-73 win over Hawthorn in Round 14.
ANALYSIS
Stringer took over the game from start to finish as other stars like Darcy Parish didn't have as much influence against the Hawks. For the most part, Stringer hasn't even come close to the possession or ball-winning numbers that he did in this game, so his value going forward will be heavily determined by how he's used after this.

Stringer (hamstring) is expected to miss three to four weeks with a hamstring injury, according to GM Josh Mahoney.
ANALYSIS
Stringer subbed out early in the Round 8 game against GWS and this news is a good indicator of how long he'll be out. Though not one to put up huge numbers, Stringer was a reliable pickup who scored between 77 and 87 fantasy points in all but one of his first five appearances this season.

Stringer will play in a VFL match against Footscray instead of in the Round 2 contest with St. Kilda, coach Ben Rutten confirmed Thursday.
ANALYSIS
Stringer should be back soon as long as nothing else comes up, though he still needs to work on his fitness. He should be a goalscoring threat at the last after scoring 15 majors in 11 matches last season.

Achilles

Stringer (Achilles) played in three quarters of a VFL match over the weekend but has not been declared available for selection, according to Head of Performance Sean Murphy.
ANALYSIS
Stringer is apparently still building up his fitness and wasn't able to receive the all-clear despite playing over the weekend. He bagged 15 majors in 11 games last season and will be a major piece for the Bombers when he returns, whether that's in Round 2 or later.
