And so the continued growth of PSi brought about a demand for the game to spread its wings and travel to another province.There was only one logical place to take it and that was to the province that is steeped in Indoor Hockey history, KwaZulu-Natal. As the hockey entered the Coastal province like a hurricane, the weather decided to follow suit and this quickly emerged as the wettest PSi Nationals in history.
Despite battles with electronic equipment malfunctioning, significant traffic delays and a torn PSi marquee, there was simply no way that the spirit of indoor hockey would be dampened.
This was also the first year that a B section franchise of the year was to be awarded and so there was more reason to swim through the storm. The Cape Seals completed a remarkable hattrick of Franchise of the Year titles and their fifth overall (one shared) while the Barracudas became the first ever B Section Franchise of the Year.
For all the rain that fell in Durban 2012, PSi was undoubtedly the silver lining of the cloudy affair.
