The 2012 Asian Five Nations division tournaments, known as the 2012 HSBC Asian 5 Nations due to the tournament's sponsorship by the HSBC, refer to the divisions played within the tournament. This was the 5th series of the Asian Five Nations.

There were five divisions in the 2012 version who contested for a place in the Top 5 tournament. Who ever finished last place in a division was relegated, while the winner of a division was promoted. Last place in division 1 was replaced by the winner of division 2, winner of division 3 replaced last place in division 2, winner in division 4 replaced last in division 3 and winner in division 5 replaced last in division 4.

Division I[edit]

For the first time, division one was held in a round-robin format. All games were played in Manila, Philippines on April 14–21, 2012.[1] The Philippines was promoted to the main division in 2013, while Singapore was relegated to division II for 2013.[2][3]
