There are no more exciting key forwards in the competition than Joe Daniher. Since being selected as a father-son pick in 2012 Daniher has rapidly developed to become a genuine powerhouse for the Bombers.

Daniher had a terrific season in 2017, blasting 65 goals to narrowly finish third in the Coleman Medal race, receiving his first Crichton Medal as the club’s best and fairest, and claiming his fourth-straight leading goalkicker award.

A key feature of Daniher’s game is his high-flying marking, which was rewarded last year with the Mark of the Year for his astonishing specky over former teammate Jake Carlisle.

Daniher is poised to play his 100th senior match this year, highlighting his opportunity to continue to improve for years to come.
