Josh Caddy has become just the second multi-premiership player in Richmond’s history after having previously played for two other league clubs.
Caddy started his AFL career with Gold Coast in 2011 and made 24 appearances all-up for the Suns before joining Geelong at the end of the 2012 season.
He went on to play 71 games for the Cats from 2013-16 and was then traded to Richmond, where he’s enjoyed considerable success throughout the past three seasons, most notably the 2017 and 2019 Grand Final triumphs.
You have to go back nearly 100 years for the only other time a player experienced multiple premiership success with the Tigers following stints at two other league clubs.
Max Hislop played nine games for Collingwood in the 1914 season and then one game with Melbourne in 1915.
After being rejected by those two clubs, Hislop’s league football looked all over, but he was talked into trying out at Richmond and he subsequently turned into a star centre half-back for the Tigers.
Hislop was Richmond’s best player in its inaugural VFL Grand Final win against Collingwood in 1920, and again the following year, when the Tigers scored a thrilling victory over Carlton in the premiership-decider.
He had a fine 128-game playing career at Tigerland from 1917-24 & 1927, and was renowned as one of the best key defenders of the era.
