After being tackled to the ground by Daicos, Caldwell is seen swinging his arm into the Magpie's torso, with the Collingwood youngster left in pain on the MCG surface.
Daicos was soon able to get to his feet and play out the match, but the incident may gain scrutiny of the AFL's Match Review Officer.
Should the MRO view Caldwell's actions as 'intentional' over 'careless', his chances of a suspension are increased.
Caldwell with a little gut punch to Daicos. That's sure to get a look in with the MRO.

If that is the case, and the MRO sees the level of impact as 'medium' at the very least, then Caldwell will be handed a suspension for striking.
A grading of intentional conduct, medium impact and body contact will result in a one-game suspension for Caldwell.
Should the level of impact be 'low' (with intentional conduct and body contact), or the grading of conduct be seen as 'careless' (with medium impact and body contact), Caldwell would escape with a fine.
