Red V on march, maybe to record

St George Illawarra captain Ben Creagh believes the club is capable of securing unprecedented membership for the 2013 season.

The Dragons were approaching 14,000 Red V members by late yesterday, and Creagh is confident of breaking the club record of 20,673 set in 2011.

"Membership is extremely important," Creagh said.

"It's really good to see the familiar faces of the the Red V members, who we see year after year continuing to support the club, and who we know are very passionate.

"I think I've seen the same familiar faces, over my whole career, who continue to support the club."

The Dragons co-ordinate one of the most successful member drives in the NRL, and were the first to break the elusive 20,000 mark in 2011.

Creagh, who was announced as club captain last month, is hopeful of elevating the club back to the heights of 2010, when it won a breakthrough premiership.

"It's very humbling to know that you're playing for a team that people support and love and have followed since they were kids," Creagh said.

"Everything's going along really well. It's been a bit weird not having Dean Young and Ben Hornby around and I'm sure it will be the same when we start playing, but that's just how it is now and we've just got to get on with it.

"Training so far, during the last five or six weeks, has been really good."
