Could Sydney poach a Daniher back from the Dons?

Joe Daniher will be front of mind when Essendon CEO Xavier Campbell and his Sydney counterpart Tom Harley talk on Tuesday during the AFL's meeting between the 18 club chief executives in country Victoria. Sydney confirmed yesterday that Harley had met with Daniher last week but both clubs have shot down speculation that the 2017 All-Australian could be headed north next season. Although it was initially reported the pair met for lunch at a restaurant, The Age understands Daniher traveled to Harley's home in Sydney. The meeting has fuelled speculation that Daniher may seek a move away from the AFL fishbowl in Melbourne, while Sydney is looking for a long-term replacement for star spearhead Lance Franklin. The private get-together has sent tongues wagging around clubland and will be a hot topic at Mitchelton Winery in Nagambie, approximately 150 kilometers north of Melbourne. Essendon was aware that the meeting was taking place and the Bombers believe the catch-up was simply between two friends, with Harley understood to be a long-term mentor. Daniher told Bombers CEO Xavier Campbell of his intention to visit Harley before the meeting took place.
