Never has there been more hype for a father-son draftee than with Joe Daniher. The son of Anthony and carrying the weight of the Daniher name, the young forward showed the football world just how talented he is in his own right, with a dominate first-half against Gold Coast providing a glimpse of what Bomber fans could be treated to over the next decade. Playing five games of senior football in 2013, Daniher was eased into the senior setup while showing at VFL level that he could compete with men. With the departure of Gumbleton and Crameri during the off-season, 2014 provides the opportunity for Daniher to cement his spot in the senior forward line.
