Original teamsEdit

When league rugby began in 1987 this division (known as South West 2) contained the following teams:

South West 1 East honoursEdit

South West 2 (1987–1993)Edit

Originally South West 1 East and South West 1 West were combined in a single division called South West 2. It was a tier 6 league with promotion up to South West 1 and relegation down to either Western Counties[a] or Southern Counties[b].

South West 2 (1993–1996)Edit

The top six teams from South West 1 and the top six from London 1 were combined to create National 5 South, meaning that South West 2 dropped to become a tier 7 league. Promotion continued to South West 1 and relegation to either Western Counties[d] or Southern Counties[e].

South West 2 East (1996–2009)Edit

League restructuring by the RFU for the 1996–97 season saw South West 2 split into two regional divisions known as South West 2 East and South West 2 West, and the cancellation of National 5 South meant that both divisions became tier 6 leagues. Promotion continued to South West 1, while relegation was now to either Southern Counties North or Southern Counties South[g].

South West 1 East (2009–present)Edit

League restructuring by the RFU meant that South West 2 East and South West 2 West were renamed as South West 1 East and South West 1 West, with both leagues remaining at tier 6. Promotion was to National League 3 South West[h], while relegation continued to either Southern Counties North or Southern Counties South.
