Glenn re-signs with Broncos

Updated: 

New Zealand international Alex Glenn re-signed with the Brisbane Broncos, committing to the NRL club until at least the end of 2019.

Glenn, 28, was given his NRL debut by the Broncos in 2009 and has gone on to make more than 200 appearances for Brisbane.

Broncos chief executive Paul White was delighted with the re-signing of Glenn, who captained Brisbane's Under-20s in their inaugural season in 2008.

"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," he said.

"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."

Brisbane sit third in the NRL ahead of a clash against league leaders Melbourne Storm on Friday.
