Another brand of cowboy is set to hit Mount Isa this weekend when the North Queensland Cowboys team shop van pulls into the Rodeo arena, with special offers on membership and merchandise for rugby league fans.

The club’s membership and merchandise team has embarked on the cross-country adventure and Cowboys Distant Star member, Mitchell Godfrey who normally watches his beloved Cowboys on-field will be one of thousands getting ready to cheer on the Rodeo.

Mitchell and partner Andrea are excited about the event.

“We’ve been living in Mount Isa for the past three years, so we were introduced to the rodeo concept early on, and have loved going every year ever since,” Mitchell  said.

Born and bred in Townsville, Mitchell is passionate about all things North Queensland – including the North’s national rugby league team, who he says have their very own “work-horse”.

“I’ve been following the club since 1995, along with the entire family and would have to say my favourite player is Gavin Cooper.

“He is an absolute work-horse and does what he has to do for the team.”

“My partner follows the Broncos, so that makes for some great rivalry – we’ll be doing our best to make it back for the game at the end of the season.”

Cowboys enthusiasts are encouraged to visit the Team Shop van this week for the chance to win a signed jersey, simply by entering the ‘Road Trip’ competition.
