Caddy accepts one match ban

Round 2: Caddy whack Josh Caddy misses the ball and makes high contact in the Round 2 match against Adelaide.

Josh Caddy will miss Richmond's round three clash against Hawthorn after accepting a one-match suspension for striking Adelaide's David Mackay.

Caddy was offered a one-match ban by match review officer Michael Christian after collecting Mackay in the head with an ill-directed round-arm spoil during the fourth quarter of the Tigers' 36-point loss at the Adelaide Oval last Thursday night.

Christian assessed Caddy's action as careless conduct with medium impact to the head.

The AFL announced on Monday that Caddy had accepted his one-man suspension, while his teammate Toby Nankervis and Adelaide youngster Darcy Fogarty had each accepted $1500 fines for misconduct.

Nankervis was charged with misconduct against Crows onballer Matt Crouch during the first quarter of last Thursday night's match, while Fogarty was charged following an incident with Caddy during the second quarter.
