Yorkshire 5 is an English Rugby Union league at the eleventh tier of the domestic competition and is currently the basement league of club rugby in Yorkshire. This league has not always been the bottom division as for a while there was a Yorkshire 6 but this league merged with Yorkshire 5 a few seasons ago. Also, for a short period, Yorkshire 5 was split into two parallel leagues based on geographical location. Promoted teams move up to Yorkshire 4.
