Biography

The second row is a position the Kiwis have traditionally been strong in. Alex Glenn continues that tradition, but he brings something a bit different to the table.

 

As a teenager, Alex had major back trouble that ruled him out of contact sport for three years. He turned his attention to touch rugby and was very good. When his back problems went away, he returned to rugby league and his footwork was better than most. How much better? Well, in 2012 Alex was the leading try-scoring forward in the NRL.

 

Alex has the pace to play in the centres, but he prefers getting into the thick of things in the second row. He has his Kiwis coach Stephen Kearney, who was also a second-rower, to help guide him at the Brisbane Broncos.

 

The Broncos have recognised Alex’s leadership qualities, with him first captaining the side during the State of Origin period in 2011 when he was just 22. Alex played his junior rugby league for Auckland’s Northcote Tigers.
