Report

The 2012 A League featured the same 6 teams as the previous season. The Dublin City Hurricanes dominated the Regular Season winning 13 games and only losing 2, with the Munster Warriors and Dublin Spartans finishing on 9-6. Joining them in the Playoffs were the Dublin Black Sox, who finished 7-8.

The Dublin City Hurricanes won through to the A League final in their Playoff match with the Munster Warriors, and the Spartans beat both the BlackSox and Warriors on their way to yet another Final.

The best-of-3 Final looked like it was going the Hurricanes way after a comfortable win in the first match, but the Spartans leveled the series the next day, and took the decider the following weekend 9-1.
