Scott Lucas addresses Essendon’s woes, says it was ‘foolish’ to think Jake Stringer could play midfield

Former Essendon star Scott Lucas says his former club was “foolish” to think Jake Stringer could play as a midfielder.

The Bombers have swung Stringer forward in recent weeks after initially experimenting with the former Western Bulldog in the centre.

“It was ridiculous to think he was a midfielder,” Lucas said on Macquarie Sports Radio.

“He hasn’t got the tank or the craft.

“You’re foolish to think the Bulldogs didn’t spend two or three years trying to see whether he was a midfielder.”

Lucas said “nothing” had gone right for Essendon so far this season and it was “extremely unlikely” the club would play finals.
