This would mean he is going to keep his spot in the starting side. You can't have a captain playing from the bench.

So that would mean Fifita on the right edge.
It makes the most sense really. TPJ on an edge is an exciting prospect, but realistically his defence is still very much a work in progress in that role.

I'm guessing that will mean TPJ to Lock, so the forward pack will probably read:

8. Lodge
9. Turpin
10. Haas
11. Glenn
12. Fifita
13. TPJ

14. Utility
15. Ofahengaue
16. Flegler
17. Carrigan

Really happy for him. It's a great reward for his loyalty and service and should hopefully soften the blow of taking a reduced final contract as he'll now get to retire as a full time Broncos Captain and will hopefully be able to leverage that as he moves towards retirement to build a corporate profile that he can earn a living from.

He'll also get to oversee the very exciting next generation of leaders and players coming through and I think that's a really exciting prospect for everyone to look forward to.

Wow, I'm genuinely surprised. I wonder how they'll spin dropping Darius, if that's indeed what's happening. We still don't know whether he's a joint captain, or if Darius is "stepping down" to concentrate on his game.

Regardless, congratulations Alex Glenn!

Kurt Gidley says hi.

LOL jks. IMO Glenn is needed to start with Gillett gone, even without the c next to his name he is a reliable workhouse with a level head.

It's a good call, he's been a leader on the field for a long time.

We certainly need to prioritise tightening up our defence so I think Glenn starting on an edge is really a no brainer. TPJ can still be effective as a Middle Forward but having Glenn out there definitely tightens up our defence on that left side.

There isn't a guy who deserves it more. One of our best and most consistent for years. What a legend.
This thread deserves an OFFICIAL tag.

Courier Mail is reporting this as the top story right now:
"BOYD OUT AS BRONCOS UNVEIL NEW SKIPPER"

They don't appear to have any more info than that twitter release, or it's embargoed.
