Cairns is 4 hours north of Townsville, so there's a bunch of Cowboys supporters, as you'd expect.
What I was surprised at is the number of TURNCOATS, who supported the Broncos, but changed allegiances when the Cows entered the fray.
Now, I can understand (maybe), if a new franchise opens up in your home town you can jump ship, but given the rivalry that exists between Cairns and Townsville, I'm at a loss to understand why. And these aren't kids - they're adults when the Cowboys entered the league.
Still - the wider question is simply: "Is it OK to change a horse in mid stream?".
Anyone jumped ship?
