Midlands 5 East (South) was an level 10 English Rugby Union league and level 5 of the Midlands League, made up of teams from the southern part of the East Midlands region including clubs from Bedfordshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and the occasional side from Cambridgeshire, all of whom played home and away matches throughout the season.

It was formed in 2006 with promoted teams typically moving up to Midlands 4 East (South) and, as one of the lowest divisions in the Midlands league, there was no relegation. Dwindling numbers of teams from year to year meant that the league was abolished at the end of the 2009-10 season with all teams being transferred into Midlands 4 East (South).
