Midlands 5 West (South) is a level 10 English Rugby Union league and level 5 of the Midlands League, made up of teams from the southern part of the West Midlands region who play home and away matches throughout the season. Formed in 2006 originally the league was divided into two regional divisions – Midlands 6 South-East and South-West – but was merged into a single division for the 2010-11 season. In its present state promoted teams typically move up to Midlands 4 West (South) with there being no relegation as it is one of the basement divisions for Midlands rugby.
