RICHMOND is hopeful of having midfielder Josh Caddy back for the final game of the home and away season after he suffered a left hamstring injury in the opening quarter of the Tigers' 14-point loss to Geelong at Simonds Stadium.

The former Cat kicked the opening goal of the game, but limped from the field late in the first term and went straight to the rooms.

He reappeared after the quarter-time break, but immediately put the tracksuit on and was ruled out for the remainder of the match.

Coach Damien Hardwick was optimistic Caddy would be available for the round 23 clash with St Kilda at the MCG. 

"We think it's on the minor end. Obviously scans will verify that but we don't think it's too serious at this stage. Losing him in the first quarter was disappointing, he started off OK. We just hope he gets back within a couple of weeks," Hardwick said.
