Difficult when watching on the TV, one of the many reasons why I like to watch games live, but what actual position was JJ playing?
Looked to me like he was starting at half back and running forward of the ball. But it's hard to tell from television.
Highly doubt it was a positional change.

Right wing/Half forward

Thank you for the replies.

Yeah it is really hard to determine when watching on TV given the camera work and depth of presses.

Would like to hope it was half forward/wing as that part of the ground provides the space to run and he looked the best he has in a while, plus his closing speed pressured the opposition in dangerous parts of the ground when they had the football, dangerous both for them and us. Enev if he was heavy tagged in these positions he looks likely to at least create turnovers.

We will see what happens this weekend

It would be interesting if somebody could post a heatmap for JJ last week. No idea where to find such things myself.
