Bit of a funny situation to find themselves in, obviously while he's there you want to play him if he's in your best 22. This gives you a better chance to win and also drives up the price for a trade.
On the other side if it is obvious he is leaving at the end of the year do you play someone else in preparation for next year? My thoughts are the former is the most sensible option.
I can see Stringer and Crameri rotating between forward and midfield, rarely will you see both in the forward 50. Seemed to work pretty well against GC, especially with Stringer getting into the game and in turn gaining confidence around the goals. The mid sized fleet of Stringer, Crameri, Dickson and Clay Smith will be a bloody nightmare to defend.
He did take a nice pack mark in the third quarter against GWS. Massive goal in the shadows of half time in the Grand Final too. Hopefully with a full preseason he launches into 2017, floating between the wing and forward pocket.
