I'm a fan of Caddy and I'd keep him in the team, but he can't afford to be untidy with his disposal.
He must have worked his butt off over the preseason to earn his spot back.

If he's on the fringe of the team then we're looking alright.

I am a fan of Caddy in the forward line.
Agree, he's played his best footy for us as a forward. He kicked 46 goals in 2018, and lost his spot down there in 2019 when Lynch came, which is fair enough. I've got no doubt that he could play forward along side Jack and Tom, but we would lose a bit with a small defensive forward making way for him. Dusty spending more time forward the last few years probably means he's not likely to play there.

Fringe player now, forward or nowhere. Too slow for wing or defence.

What did Dimma say in last night's presser, with the new rules if you can't run you wont get a game, Caddy after a great pre-season did look slow on the expanses of the G.

He had a great '19 GF playing on the wing but it looks past him now if the game stays the way it has the last few weeks. It could slow down a bit (expect it will), and he may still have a role up forward, but he looks a bit iffy out wide.

I prefer Pickett on the wing to Caddy. If Caddy isn't playing forward he's not in my team.
Couldn't agree more.
Caddy's best position is forward, he's got good footy nous, and I reckon he, Riewoldt and Lynch could work especially with the rule changes.

Love Caddy, but sadly think his days are numbered with us.

I like Caddy, but tend to agree. With the new rules, I think he could offer a fair bit up forward.

Not sure what his contract situation is, but not sure he’ll be at Tigerland next year. Prime candidate to chase some coin or be let go to give a younger guy a crack.

Caddy's going ok. But that barely gets you a game. Pickett better on the wing, not sure there's room forward. Last year of his contract, could be his last year with us.

Perfect sub
Enough of the wing - McIntosh concussion may save him.
Has been binned as a 3rd forward, I dont get it.
If lack of pressure acts is the issue then cant play wing either surely.
Just not a wingman sort it out..!!

We may need to switch to more ball playing wings, whether that be Naish or Ralph-Smith. These rule changes may benefit someone like Naish.
