Jones says Daniher an AFL inspiration

Roger Vaughan

Melbourne co-captain Nathan Jones continues to be left in awe by his former AFL coach Neale Daniher, who suffers from the incurable disease MND.

Daniher is the driving force behind the Freeze MND event, where all 18 senior coaches will take an icy water slide at the MCG before Monday's big clash between the Demons and Collingwood.

"I'm left in awe, every time you see him ... it's quite inspiring, he's defied medical opinion and he continues to just fight and find a way," Jones said.
