Report

For the second season in-a-row the Dublin Spartans (10-5) beat the Dublin City Hurricanes (15-0) in the Final after the Hurricanes had won the League Pennant. It was especially bitter for the Hurricanes as they had gone through the season undefeated. The Munster Warriors (7-8) qualified for their first ever A League Playoffs, and the Belfast North Stars (4-11) joined them as the fourth team to make the postseason. Dublin Black Sox (4-11) and Greystones Mariners (2-13) narrowly missed out on the playoffs.
