Midfielders around the league are breathing a sigh of relief with the QAFL’s best tagger of 2010 having moved north.

Curtis Allen was a revelation for Labrador last season, locking down on the best midfielders in the competition with great success.

But the 21-year-old has joined South Cairns for the winter, taking a strong, physical presence out of the Tigers midfield.

Courageous former Gold Coast Suns triallee Michael Gugliotta is one of a number of recruits to Cooke-Murphy Oval who will ensure Allen’s departure can be covered, however.

A versatile and athletic player with terrific passion for the game and excellent agility,  Gugliotta was an AIS/AFL Academy graduate in 2007.

The Tigers have also gained livewire rover Justin Harding, who has been cleared to the Gold Coast club by Mount Gravatt after two years out of local football.

The Tigers are set to unveil a number of new faces in Round 1 against Redland at Cooke-Murphy Oval on Saturday and will be determined to show they have the capabilities of matching their breakout 2010 season.
