Brisbane Broncos captain Alex Glenn will retire at the end of the 2021 season.
Glenn has played his entire career at Brisbane, making 282 NRL appearances to date over a 17-year period. He is the club’s fourth-most capped player of all time behind Darren Lockyer (355 games), Corey Parker (347) and Sam Thaiday (304).
The 33-year-old was made club captain two years ago, and is a five-time winner of the club’s Kevin Walters Award for Most Consistent Player – a record at the club.
He said: “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.
“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.
“The Broncos are a family and I feel like I have grown up here and I appreciate every player, coach and staff member that has helped me along that journey.”
Broncos Coach Kevin Walters paid tribute to Glenn: “Lex has played at a very high standard for a long time and led by example on and off the field.
“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.”
