Broncos player predicts big year for Jets

BRISBANE Broncos second-rower Alex Glenn has predicted another big year for the Ipswich Jets in the Intrust Super Cup.

With former Jets players Carlin Anderson and Billy McConnachie joining the Broncos this year there is a definite Ipswich influence emerging in the Brisbane camp.

"The Jets have always been a part of the Broncos," Glenn said.

"It's just a credit to their club to get a few more players back in our top 30."

Glenn said he was impressed with the success the Jets enjoyed last year.

"They were just willing to sacrifice everything to be at the pinnacle of their game and they were rewarded with their success in the end," he said.

"It was just a matter of time before those players - after that success - were brought here to the club."

The New Zealand international praised the work of Jets co-coaches Ben and Shane Walker.

"Their coaches have brought a lot of great vibes around that club," he said.

"It's hard to bring teams like that together especially when players come from different places, different towns. They definitely put Ipswich on the map."

Glenn predicted the Jets could continue their winning form into 2016 after a busy off-season of recruitment.

"They have lost a few players so it's good that they've signed some great players and fingers crossed they can go back-to-back," he said.

"It's just a matter of managing their players well throughout the year and just staying injury free.

"That's a big thing for any team ."
