Wigan RL History - 1906-07 Season

Click to View: 1905-1906 Season or 1907-1908 Season

Modern rugby league was born in 1906-07 when the number of players was reduced from 15 to 13 a side. Rucks and mauls were abolished and replaced by the play-the-ball. These changes led immediately to much higher scores.

1906-07 also saw the introduction of the Championship Play Offs at the end of the season. Similar to the current Grand Final system of nowadays it involved the top four clubs playing in two semi finals (1v4, 2v3) and then a final with the winners being declared champions. This system was used right up until 1961-62.

This was also the last season Wigan competed in the South West Lancashire League. Only six teams competed (Wigan, Warrington, St Helens, Widnes, Leigh and Runcorn). They met home & away but if they met in the league that result counted towards the South West Lancashire League (indicated with SWLL on the List). The SWLL was replaced by a full scale Lancashire league in 1907-08.

Wigan Final League Position: 5th
League Champions:
Halifax (18-3 v Oldham)
Challenge Cup Winners: Warrington (17-3 v Oldham)
Lancashire Cup Winners: Broughton Rangers (15-6 v Warrington)
