He has shed weight and looks very fit. I love what he brings to the table. And yeah, he does get under the oppositions skin.
OER. Calling it as it is since 2004.

In great preseason form.

Needs to take it to the home and away games, and for a sustained period of time.

The Tiger that has Dimma 'really excited'

RICHMOND hard nut Josh Caddy has only scratched the surface of how good he can be and shapes as a weapon for the reigning premiers this season, according to coach Damien Hardwick.

Caddy was a star in the Tigers' 70-point win over North Melbourne in the JLT Community Series on Wednesday night, moving between the midfield and forward line in a dynamic performance.

And with premiership midfielder Dion Prestia no certainty to return from a hamstring injury for the season opener against Carlton on March 22, Caddy could be in line for more midfield duties.   

"I'm really excited by Josh," coach Damien Hardwick said on Wednesday night after ending a faultless pre-season campaign. 

"He's just added to us. He's added to our flexibility and we’re really excited about what he's brought to our footy club and how he's going to play in the future.

"We think he's only starting to scratch the surface of how good he can be and we're really excited by that."

Caddy racked up 20 possessions and an equal team-high seven clearances on Wednesday night, stepping into centre stoppages and giving the Tigers a big midfield body when Dustin Martin was stationed forward.

The former Geelong and Gold Coast midfielder also booted two goals and was used off the back of the square at times, showcasing the flexibility that will make him a key player in the Tigers' premiership defence.

Caddy doesn’t expect to become a permanent fixture in the Tigers’ midfield, but he’s more than happy to do whatever he can to help the team.

“I think my role this year’s going to be pretty similar to last year . . . play as a forward and I’ll go into the midfield at times when ‘Cotch’ (Trent Cotchin) or ‘Dusty’ (Dustin Martin) need a rest,” Caddy told ‘Roar Vision’.

“That’s, I think, a strength of ours.

“We’ve got a lot of blokes that can go through there and also play forward.

“So my role is pretty similar to what it was last year. But it’s always nice to get into the middle and chase the ball around for a bit.”

Preseason wrap

Rebound season:
While part of last year's premiership side, Josh Caddy's production has dropped away over the past two seasons. Preseason signs have been positive averaging 21 disposals, 11.5 contested possessions and two goals. This can be Caddy's best season yet.

Caddy played his forward/midfield role to perfection. He had 19 disposals, including 11 contested possessions, an equal game-high eight inside-50s, four clearances, six score involvements, 42 pressure points, 425 metres gained, took five marks and booted three goals.

“He wants to spend more time in the midfield, and when he does he has an impact . . . had the 19 possessions tonight. But he embraces the fact that he’s required in that forward line, as part of that really mobile forward line they do have,” Ling said post-match on Channel Seven.

“He’s almost, I suppose, along with (Jacob) Townsend, their next marking option, with Jack Riewoldt.

“He embraces that role, does it well when he’s there, and then has his time in the midfield.”

Thanks Geelong  ;D.

Caddy's goals especially in the 3rd qtr were crucial after we fell behind. Turned the tide of the game back our way.

Had some of the worst case of the fumbles iv seen today but kicked goals when it mattered and is an important player for us.

His kicking for goal from more than 2m was a real knock on his game last year. Is actually putting it through the sticks and was a real asset today. Well done Caddy!
