NRMA Insurance Broncos’ forward Alex Glenn says a simple recipe will help the club take the next step towards a seventh NRL title.
Using the motivation of being written off in 2015, the Broncos produced an impressive rise up the ladder during Wayne Bennett’s first season back at Red Hill.
However that is now history, and after a tough preseason Glenn is ‘pumped’ to play Parramatta tomorrow night and move on from the memories of last year.
And a simple combination of hard work and sacrifice is the key.
“We had a tough meeting when we came back into preseason and did a video review of that game (the losing Grand Final),” said Glenn this week.
“In order to move forward you have to go through those hard times and learn from your mistakes.
“Our club have always been true competitors and strive for greatness.
“We always have our high standards, but having that doesn’t mean it will come easy.
“You have got to be putting in the hard yards and be willing to go the full 80 minutes.
“Week in and week out you have to be performing consistently. “
The New Zealand representative’s future with the club is secure after signing a two-year contract extension last season.
Now with the off-field matters taken care of, the back rower is striving to have a career-best season.
“The competition in this team is very strong,” he said after being named ahead of Kangaroo Sam Thaiday to start in the second row against the Eels.
“We have a lot of young players who have had good preseasons and who will be pushing hard for spots.
“I am secure here for a couple more years, but I have to work hard to make sure I am pushing myself to be a better player, and to get to the ultimate goal of playing in the grand final again.”
