Player Bio

The GIANTS selected Brent Daniels at pick 27 in the 2017 NAB AFL Draft. Daniels is a small forward who reads the ball exceptionally well off hands and is a good distributor by hand and foot. He’s footy smart and has the skills and speed to be a damaging forward of centre player. Daniels made his AFL debut in round 16, 2018 and played seven games in his first season.‚Äč

2018 started badly for the small forward when he suffered a serious knee injury in the pre-Christmas training period, but after a long rehabilitation and some solid games in the NEAFL, he made his debut in round 16 against West Coast and played seven games before being dropped after round 22. Kicked only four goals but impressed with his forward pressure at ground level, and if he can increase his scoring output, he’ll be in contention for a regular spot.

With Steve Johnson and Devon Smith departing at the end of last season, the GIANTS rated Daniels the best small forward in the draft and pounced on him. The teenager has outstanding speed, reads the play well and uses the ball efficiently by hand and foot.
