Richmond Tigers quartet cleared for AFL final, Josh Caddy fined for stomping

Richmond forward Josh Caddy is $3000 out of pocket for two misconduct incidents involving Hawthorn tagger Daniel Howe in the AFL qualifying final.

But Caddy and fellow key teammates Trent Cotchin, Jack Riewoldt and Alex Rance cleared for their preliminary final after a video review of Thursday night's fiery clash at the MCG.

No charges were laid against Cotchin, Riewoldt and Rance, while Hawks captain Jarryd Roughead and Paul Puopolo also were cleared.

Caddy stomped on Howe's hand and also caught the Hawk player's head between his legs in a wrestling move as they grappled during the second quarter.

The Tigers forward was fined $1500 apiece for the two offences.

Cotchin escaped sanction after he caught Hawthorn star Shaun Burgoyne with high contact in the first quarter.

The Tigers captain gave up a free kick, but Burgoyne missed the simple shot at goal.

Puopolo and Rance were cleared for a scuffle with each other and the Hawks small forward also faces no charge for another incident involving Daniel Rioli.

Roughead faced scrutiny for his high bump on Reece Conca and Riewoldt's open-handed hit on James Sicily was also reviewed before he was cleared.
