Southern Counties South is a league in the Rugby Football Union South West Division, the rugby union governing body for South West England, part of the Rugby Football Union. The league sits at the seventh tier of club rugby union in England and primarily features teams based in Dorset and Wiltshire. The league champions at the end of the season are promoted to South West 1 East while the runners up face the runners up from Southern Counties North for their place. Relegated teams tend to drop to either Dorset & Wilts 1 North or Dorset & Wilts 1 South depending on geographic placement.
