The Adelaide Crows have officially parted with AFL forward Tyson Stengle after the 22-year-old’s third off-field indiscretion.

Stengle and the Crows have struck a confidential settlement in which the 22-year-old, who was contracted until the end of next season, departs the club.

Adelaide confirmed Stengle’s exit in a statement on Wednesday after standing down the goalsneak last December when a photo circulated purportedly showing him with drugs.

That followed Stengle twice being suspended for four games for separate off-field indiscretions earlier last year.

In April, the Crows banned Stengle for four AFL games after he was caught drink-driving.

And in September, Stengle and then-teammate Brad Crouch were suspended by the AFL after being caught with illicit drugs.

Stengle was again banned for four games and Crouch, who has left the Crows for St Kilda, was suspended for two games when the AFL found the pair guilty of conduct unbecoming.

The Crows and the AFL in January gave permission for Stengle to train with his former SANFL club, Woodville-West Torrens Eagles.


Stengle was recruited from the Eagles to the AFL by Richmond in 2017 and played two games for the Tigers before joining Adelaide for the 2019 season. He played 14 games for the Crows.
