Midlands 2 East (South) is a level 7 English Rugby Union league and level 2 of the Midlands League, made up of teams from the southern part of the East Midlands region including sides from Bedfordshire, Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and occasionally Cambridgeshire and Oxfordshire, who play home and away matches throughout the season. Each year all clubs in the division also take part in the RFU Intermediate Cup - a level 7 national competition.

The division was formed for the 2000-01 when the old Midlands 3 East was split into two regional divisions called Midlands 3 East (North) and Midlands 3 East (South) and gained its current title for the 2009-10 season due to further restructuring to the Midlands League. Promoted teams tend to move up to Midlands 1 East with the champions going up automatically and the runners up having to play a playoff against the runners up from Midlands 2 East (North) for their place. Demoted teams typically drop to Midlands 3 East (South).

Number of league titles

Note

  1. ^ Mistakenly referred to as Midlands 3 East (North) on RFU website.
  2. ^ There was no relegation due to restructuring of the Midlands league with teams instead being transferred to the new look Midlands 3 East (North) or Midlands 3 East (South) for the following season.
  3. ^ No relegation as the division would be increased from 10 to 12 teams for the following season.
  4. ^ Due to the RFU restructuring the league system for the 2009-10 season, runners up Stewarts & Lloyds were automatically promoted as one of the two best runners up of the four Midlands 3 divisions, meaning they did not have to face a playoff.
  5. ^ Last season as Midlands 3 East (South). Would be renamed Midlands 2 East (South) for the following season.
  6. ^ The 2008-09 promotion playoffs were different as the RFU was reorganizing the leagues across the country including the Midlands division. Usually the winners of each of the four regional divisions would go up automatically along with two of the runners up who won their respective playoffs, meaning 6 teams were promoted. This year one extra was required to be promoted so the top two runners up by league points - Bourneville (40) and Stewarts & Lloyds (40) went up - leaving the other two runners up - Nuneaton Old Edwardians (34) and Spalding (38) - to compete for the final promotion spot.[11]
  7. ^ After extra time.
  8. ^ One of Wellingborough's titles was won when division was unified as Midlands 3 East.
  9. ^ Dunstablian's title was won when division was unified as Midlands 3 East.
