IMO, it’s because the aim would be to cause a repeat stoppage or force a turnover up the field (depending on field position). When the ball comes to the front of the stoppage like that we should have the dangerous exit point covered, their defensive side, so that means either a quick kick forward or submit to Grundy coming in over the top.^Anyone else noted the amount of times Grundy hits toward the boundary at throw ins and we seem to have no-one there boundary-side to rove the tap out.
In order to know whether it’s effective or not you’d need that contested possession from a stoppage stat or DE from those clearances. My best guess is they wouldn’t be effective stoppage wins for our opposition because a) it would be hard to generate a chain of possessions from that area of the ground and b) it’s extremely difficult to score from there without beating at least two tacklers.
