2012 was the fifth competitive season for the Cairns based Skill360 Northern Pride Rugby League Football Club. They competed in the QRL state competition, the Intrust Super Cup. 12 clubs competed, with each club playing 22 matches (11 home and 11 away) over 25 weeks (In 2012 the Central Comets were renamed the CQ Capras).

The Pride finished seventh, missing out on a finals appearance for the first time in their short history. At the end of the season, Head Coach David Maiden resigned, while fullback Chey Bird, who scored 572 points in 94 appearances for the Pride, retired along with former North Queensland Cowboys star Rod Jensen, who scored 36 tries in 69 games for the club, second on the Pride's all-time try scorer list.

In 2012 games were televised in Queensland and shown live at 2.00pm (AEST) on Sunday afternoons (except during coverage of the London Olympics) by Channel 9, WIN Television (RTQ) and in remote areas on Imparja Television. The commentary team was Andrew Voss, Ben Ikin and Nick Curry. The first home game broadcast from Barlow Park, Cairns was Round 13, Sunday 10 June 2012 against traditional rivals Mackay Cutters. From Round 1 2012 the Pride began live streaming their home games free to members via their website ($5 for non-members).[1] From Round 5 2012 away games were streamed through the website as well ($5).[2]
