A friend has just given me 8 strawberry plants ,rooted runners.The appear healthy except for a bit of crinkling in some of the new leaves .No photos unfortunately .I'm wondering if its a virus or perhaps red spider .Any advice ? Should I plant them or not ?

I'd plant them in 8" pots but they also do well on Gro-bags - terrible predation by slugs, children and labradors.

In the UK - they go well in full sun to semi-shaded conditions - New South Wales might be different, ask the guy who gave you the runners.

The leaves tend to be crinkly when they're very young.
