Josh Caddy’s name was inserted into early discussions for the Deledio move to Geelong (which is now definitely off) and eventually turned into a thing of its own. Caddy is one of the few young Geelong midfielders with promise, a former number 7 pick who is now on to his third club.
In 2012 Geelong paid a first and third rounder for Caddy, which at the time was considered to be fair value for the talented youngster. Whilst some of the lustre has worn off his early projections, Caddy remains a good player who has yet to enter his prime. For Richmond, he represents another building block hopefully bridging their way out of mid-table mediocrity.
It seems that Richmond are getting a really good deal for Caddy here, even without considering the exchange of later picks.
Verdict: A Richmond win, as Geelong tries to claw back into the draft.
