RICHMOND dual premiership forward Josh Caddy has been ruled out of football's restart on Thursday night with calf soreness.

The medium goalkicker, who played a key role in the Tigers' 2017 and 2019 premierships, will miss the club's clash with Collingwood at the MCG.

Veteran half-back Bachar Houli has overcome his calf issues and will play, while youngster Jack Higgins is back for his first game since brain surgery last year.

As expected the Magpies have made only one change from their side that dominated the Western Bulldogs way back in March in round one.

The Pies have left out Mason Cox, who had an interrupted lead-in to the restarted season with knee issues, and brought in former Swan Darcy Cameron for his first game for the club after one appearance for Sydney in 2018.

Cox is listed as an emergency.
