Highly decorated backrower Alex Glenn will be Captain of the Brisbane Broncos again this season.
Broncos Coach Kevin Walters announced Glenn’s retention as skipper for 2021 ahead of the 267-game veteran’s Testimonial Game tomorrow night against the Cowboys at Dolphin Stadium.
Glenn, entering his 13th year with the Broncos and a winner of the club’s Most Consistent Player Award for a record five times, said he was honoured to have the “C” beside his name for another season.
“It’s something I love – I feel like I didn’t really get the opportunity last year because I was injury-prone but I’m really grateful to be given another opportunity to lead this great club,” he said.
“I’m going to help our team get the best results week-in, week-out and help my teammates be the best they can both on and off the field.
“I look at the captains who have led this club in the past and they are legends of the game – I don’t consider myself in their league but I just want to do everyone proud and lead by example on the field, that’s where I do my best work as captain.”
Walters said on Glenn: “Alex was Captain under trying circumstances last year and I think he did a great job – he has the experience and he has been a consistent player for the Broncos over a long period of time.
“He is one of our most experienced players and he understands what being a Broncos is about, and wearing that jersey and leading that team.
“We want all of our senior players and everyone who pulls that Broncos jersey to show the qualities that a real Broncos player shows, just like Alex Glenn does every game he plays.”
