Alex Glenn, and the Brisbane Broncos. Their association started in 2009 and will end in 2021, with the club stalwart announcing his retirement.
Glenn played in 13 seasons at the highest level, has amassed 282 games to date, the fourth most by a Broncos player.
Glenn has been the Broncos’ club captain for the last two seasons and the chance to play out his career at one club was an honour for the man himself.
It was always a dream come true to play for the Broncos but to finish my career as a one-club player here is beyond anything I could have imagined,” Glenn said.
“There have been plenty of highs and lows but I have never taken for granted how special it is to be able to pull on the Broncos jersey.”
It was not only a long club career for Glenn, with the veteran enjoying lengthy stints with both New Zealand and the Cook Islands.
Despite his departure, Glenn believes the Broncos are heading in the right direction.
“The Broncos have a bright future ahead, you can see that by the way we have turned things around this year, and I can’t wait to see this team grow and succeed in the years ahead,” Glenn continued.
Broncos coach Kevin Walters praised Glenn for the standard he set as a leader, both on and off the field.
“Lex has played at a very high standard for a long time and led by example on and off the field,” Walters said.
“To be so consistent week-in, week-out since making his debut in 2009 is an incredible effort.
“He’s a true clubman and will always be remembered for his pride and passion in the Broncos jersey.”
