Alex Glenn has declared his intention to play on beyond his current contract and join an exclusive club to have played 300 games for the Brisbane Broncos.
The 29-year-old back-rower is off contract at the end of next season and has played 223 Telstra Premiership games for the Broncos, placing him 10th on the all-time list.
Darren Lockyer (355 games) and Corey Parker (349) are the only Broncos to have reached the milestone and Glenn intends to join them.
"I still believe I have got more in the tank and that hunger and passion, so playing 300 games here is in my sights and is something that I would love to achieve," Glenn told NRL.com.
"Darren Lockyer and Corey Parker have done it and Sam Thaiday [on 285 games] is so close.
"I debuted with Locky in 2009 and he threw me [the pass for] my first career try at Mt Smart. He is a legend of this club and never stopped competing so I want to get to that 300 mark. I know it is going to mean doing all the one-per-centers off the field and that it isn't going to just be handed to me because I have so many younger players behind me competing for my position.

"I am at the back end of my career so I have to make sure my body is feeling great week-in and week-out and that I am still competing as hard as I can."
Glenn is a proud footballer and knows he cannot afford to repeat his display in the round-one loss to St George Illawarra, a performance that caused him to reassess his attitude.
"I was highly embarrassed about that game and with my personal performance," he said.
"I made a commitment after that to myself that I won’t ever toss that up again.
"I went in a bit comfortable and thinking we would get the win easy, a bit too over-confident to be honest. Ever since I’ve made sure I am really humble going into every game and competing really hard on the field so that I can walk off and look my teammates in the eye knowing I did my job.”
Glenn, who has played 12 Tests for the Kiwis, hasn’t played for New Zealand since 2015 and with a new coach set to be appointed hasn’t given up hope of reviving his international career.

"That goal is always going to burn bright, but I don’t take it personally that I haven’t made the squad in a few years because there have been some better players in better form than me," he said.
"I reckon Benji Marshall deserves a spot because he has been playing some good football. Age is just a number. If Benji is in that squad he will add to the culture and I’d love to be a part of it.
"We’ve just got to wait and see who is going to be the coach and what sort of team he wants in the future, but all I can do is control what I do on the field."
