ALEX Glenn will bring up a decade with the Broncos after re-signing to stay with the club for a further two years.
The Kiwi international will be a Bronco until at least the end of the 2019 season after inking a new deal this week.
Glenn was spotted playing Queensland Cup for the Burleigh Bears in 2007 and was signed to play in the Broncos’ inaugural under-20s team the following season.
He would captain that side to the NYC Grand Final, and by 2011 he was playing Test football for New Zealand.
After making his NRL debut in 2009, the 28-year-old father of two young children has now played over 200 games for the Broncos and 12 Tests for the Kiwis.
Broncos’ chief executive Paul White send the retention of Glenn was something the Broncos had been working hard on.
“Alex was the captain of our first ever National Youth Competition team back in 2008, so to have him re-commit to our club is a wonderful thing for the Broncos,” said White.
“We have watched Alex grow from a teenager from Auckland and the Gold Coast into a Test player and a fine young family man.
“The Broncos are very pleased he will continue to be part of our future with this new two-year deal.”
Glenn will line up for the Broncos against the Melbourne Storm in a massive blockbuster at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night.
