Aussie Rules: Daniher pens new Lions deal

The Brisbane Lions have secured the future of Joe Daniher who has penned a new two-year contract extension that will take him through until the end of the 2025 AFL campaign.

The Lions are priced at 7/1 to win the 2022 AFL grand final and Daniher has a key role to play in their push for silverware, so the news comes as a huge boost.

Back to fitness

The star forward arrived from Essendon having played just 15 games across three seasons having struggled with niggling injuries.

However he had an impressive 2021 campaign for the Lions when playing in 26 games and is now ready to kick on in the new season which gets underway in March.

Daniher's three-year deal was set to expire at the end of the 2023 season but the Lions have made sure he is on board for longer and the player could not be happier.

"It's been fantastic," he told reporters. "I'm really enjoying the place, really enjoying the city. The team and club itself is in great shape."

Lions salute deal

Lions list manager Dom Ambrogio has also saluted the deal and believes Daniher is all set for a big 2022 as they chase the flag.

"Joe hasn't missed a beat since joining the Lions," he added. "He set the tone in his first pre-season at the club by being one of the only players to do every single session and he took that base and turned it into a very good debut season.

"His second pre-season has been just as productive.

"This extension is reward for Joe for the great start he's made with the Lions and for us it is about locking away one of the key planks of our side to a longer-term deal."
