Alex Glenn has said he is looking to earn both a contract extension and a starting role with the Broncos this season.
Previous reports had linked Glenn with a move to Gold Coast but he stated himself that he had no intention of leaving Brisbane.
“I am 31 this year. Anyone can have their own judgement or their own opinion that the younger boys can do the same job as me, but I believe I have a lot more to give,” Glenn told NRL.com.
“There is always going to talk about players moving to different clubs and I didn’t let it affect me. I was always contracted here at the Broncos in 2019.
Although Glenn is aware of the young talent hungry for game time, he insists that he has the qualities to continue to warrant his place.
“You look at Jaydn Su’A and you look at David Fifita, and the qualities they can produce as young players on an edge,” he said.
“I’ve got to thank those boys for pushing me to keep competing and keep training as hard as I can. It has only helped me.
“I am like a nice red wine. I just get better with age. Body-wise, I feel great. I felt great going into the game and everything out there felt great. To score a hat-trick is instilling a lot of confidence going into round one.”
The Broncos face last year’s grand finalists Melbourne Storm in round one in Melbourne on March 14.
