Out of contract at the conclusion of 2019, New Zealand international Alex Glenn believes his NRL career still has plenty of life left.

The 30-year-old has played 253 games for the Broncos since his debut in 2009 and after a decade at the club, Glenn believes the Titans could benefit him if he was to leave Brisbane.

Glenn told The Courier-Mail about his future in the game and how he can still be a strong contributor to the Gold Coast re-build.

"Personally I reckon I could (help them)," Glenn exclaimed.

“Having previous Broncos players there, I think they could vouch for me. I know what I bring to a team and I think I could help them in that department.

“If they put in a good offer I would be stupid to knock it back. Our careers don’t last too long and I have a young family.

“People are like do you want to reach 300 (games for the Brisbane Broncos). Ultimately I would love to. Statistics don’t put food on the table and a roof over my family’s head.

“Nothing is ever ruled out. If I get an offer from another club that is stupid to refuse, I have to put my family first and that is where I am at.”

In the coming weeks, the club veteran will talk to his manager and the Broncos' hierarchy about his playing future, possibly signing a short term deal. After being linked to the Titans for some time now it appears more and more likely the second-rower will be moving across the state to 'little brother' in 2020.

Glenn, when asked about the links with the Titans, was adamant, "At the moment, nothing has been put on the table, it is all talk. At the moment we don’t know where we’re going round."

He also spoke about the Broncos, to which he has played all his career games in the NRL, about a potential added season.

“All the important people — I am going to sit down with them.

“That is a great sign. I am excited to see what happens because it is a club that gave me my first opportunity and a club that means a lot to me.

“They are going to I guess give me a rundown on what is going on and what is the plan. They have told me how much they want to keep me and the coaches are behind that, which is great to know. I am yet to have this sit down … and until then I am not too sure.”

Ironically the Titans and the Broncos clash on the weekend in an important game for both clubs with Brisbane a chance to move into the eight, and the Titans a chance to get off the bottom. Glenn is expecting a tough game for the Titans and is always excited by the big Queensland rivalry matches.

“Living on the Gold Coast, you see the papers — the whole back page. As a player, it started to get you mentally. I know these boys are going to come out and really fire up, especially in front of their home crowd where it matters most," Glenn said.

“When they played us in Brisbane they put numbers on us. They got a big win against us. You can’t turn up to a game and expect to win even though they are at the bottom of the ladder.

“Our rivalry — the little brother, big brother — I know they hate it and I know they will; be turning up to play their best game against us. It is going to be a tough one bro.”

Glenn's future is undecided but for now, his priorities rest with ensuring Brisbane play finals in 2019.
