EX-AFL star Matt Suckling has made a mid-season switch to Queensland.
Queensland Football Association (QFA) division one club Coorparoo announced the signing of Suckling on Monday.
Suckling is in the process of a move to Brisbane due to employment.
The 33-year-old has spent the past season and a half at Ormond in the Premier C division of the Victorian Amateur Football Association (VAFA).
Suckling, an East Wagga-Kooringal junior, will be coached at Coorparoo by Barry O'Brien, who is no stranger to Riverina football.
O'Brien coached the Hawks and Mangoplah-Cookardinia United-Eastlakes during a two-year stint in the Riverina League back in 2006-07.
