Experienced backrower Alex Glenn has signed a two-year extension to stay at the Brisbane Broncos.
The 31-year-old, with 259 NRL games for the Broncos to his name since making his debut in 2009, has locked in with the club to the end of the 2021 season.
The former junior touch football gun produced another strong season in 2019, winning the club’s Most Consistent Award for an incredible the fifth time as he took on more of a leadership role.
The versatile forward first claimed the title in 2012 and again in 2014, before winning the sought-after award for the last three years straight.
Glenn said he was enjoying his role as an elder statesman among his talented young teammates.
“I’ve enjoyed being a leader for these boys,” said Glenn. “We’ve had 12 debutants in 2019 and they have all deserved their jersey this year.
But the thing that kept me going hard every single week was competing with these boys – they’ll never beat me on my efforts.Alex Glenn Brisbane Broncos
Broncos coach Anthony Seibold has been a strong advocate for Glenn’s retention as a key factor in bringing out the best in a developing team.
“His consistency sets a great example for our whole squad and his leadership is important to the players at our club working to fulfil their potential,” said Seibold.
“He always works hard and always gives his all – we want everyone at this club to follow the example that he sets.”
