Essendon took the approach it was going to play Daniher as much as it could in his second season, and the young tall forward vindicated its faith. He was the club's leading goalkicker with 28 and his four-goal haul in the elimination final defeat to North Melbourne showed his extreme talent and promise. He can improve his accuracy when kicking at goal and is likely to continue to build on his body strength, but Daniher is fast emerging as one of the most exciting young forwards in the competition.
