Tough choices for Stringer, says teammate

WESTERN Bulldogs midfielder Mitch Wallis says Jake Stringer has some tough decisions to make and has not denied there has been some disconnect between the premiership forward and the club.

Debate is raging about whether the Bulldogs should part ways with the 23-year-old after a season in which he failed to reach his best.

"It's still up in the air and he still has to really commit to the club," Wallis said on SEN radio.

"It needs to be a full commitment from him and not one where he's unsure.

"I want him to stay, that's the priority. But he has to be fully committed to playing for the Dogs and I think he is.

"If he decides to stay, he'll stay for a long time. And if he doesn't, good luck to him.

"He's had a couple of injuries late in the year which obviously made it hard for him because he hadn't had a great year form-wise.

"He's still contracted, I know that doesn't mean too much these days, but I'm sure over the next few weeks he'll have a fair bit of thinking time of what his future looks like and what he wants to do."
