I have noticed several times my defenders being in weird positions at stoppages.
The example here is Jack Watts playing back flank (bottom of screen) lining up alone while Tom Lynch sits top right. Lynch kicked a goal from this stoppage because Adelaide pushed it forward and Watts couldn’t get back. I was on balanced with no spares.
Other examples are my back pockets randomly spawning alone in the forward goal square for stoppages and despite them kicking goals there it’s not really rewarding because they weren‘t supposed to be there.
