The Townsville Bulletin has confirmed the New Zealand club has been digging its roots into the region, its newest base outside of southeast Queensland, with one man believed to be behind the movement.
The man, who the Bulletin has chosen not to name, has lived in Townsville for 15 years, and is alleged to have begun recruiting in September.

The Bulletin understands this man has already recruited about eight members into the North Queensland chapter of the Mongrel Mob.
