In only his third year of senior football, Joe Daniher embraced the responsibility of being the team's key forward. His highly documented work with Matthew Lloyd throughout the year saw his goal kicking and skills as a forward progress immensely, with the 22-year-old topping Essendon's goal kicking list for a second consecutive season. Daniher's inclusion in the 'Emerging Leaders' group at the club is testament to his hard work, signalling his importance to the Bombers' future. 

Season By Season

Season By Season

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.
