Main article: 2012 RFL Championship

This is a list of the 2012 RFL Championship season results. The Championship is the second-tier rugby league competition in the United Kingdom. The 2012 season started on 8 March and ends on 30 September with the Grand Final at the Halliwell Jones Stadium in Warrington. 2012 is the last season to consist of a 10-team division, with the league expanding to 12 teams for 2013 with the inclusion of the top 4 teams from the 2012 Championship 1 season, Barrow Raiders, Doncaster RLFC, Whitehaven RLFC and Workington Town.

The 2012 season consists of two stages. The regular season was played over 18 round-robin fixtures, in which each of the fourteen teams involved in the competition played each other once at home and once away. In the Championship, a win was worth three points in the table, a draw worth two points apiece, and a loss by less than 12 points during the game earned one bonus point. Defeats by more than 12 points yielded no points.

The Championship will be decided through the second stage of the season, the play-offs. The top six teams in the table contest to play in the Grand Final, the winners of which will be crowned champions.
