THEY may have won a premiership in 2012, but Springfield Hawks president Wayne Anderson is hoping for an even better year in 2013.

Anderson said the club wanted to continue to expand the club's influence over the course of the coming season.

Anderson is hoping to capitalise on the club's best ever season and bring in more players and more fans.

"We're hoping this year we'll be able to grow the club even more," he said.

The Hawks dominated the Pegg Cup last year, taking out the grand final in emphatic style with a 43-24 win over Beenleigh at Ballymore.

The club is hoping to reproduce the efforts again in 2013 and again club the Suburban Rugby Union second division title.

Anderson said after a landmark year in 2012 the Hawks were looking to repeat their success.

While the Hawks topped the Pegg Cup throughout the year they had a harder time in the first division Barber Cup finishing the season second from the bottom.

The Barber Cup saw fellow Ipswich-based teams Goonda and Ipswich Rangers qualify for the finals.

While Goodna crashed out in the opening round, Rangers won the grand final, leading to an Ipswich clubs holding the top two division championships.
