Wigan RL History - 1966-67 Season
Click to View: 1965-1966 Season or 1967-1968 Season

The RFL introduced a "tackle count" in December 1966 which meant you had a certain number of tackles in which to score. It had been trialed in the early rounds of the Floodlit Trophy in this season but Wigan didn't take part in the competition then due to no floodlights. So the tackle rule was first implemented in a Wigan match when they met Blackpool at Central Park on December 3rd. Initially it was a set of four tackles to score a try. It wouldn't increase to the modern day six tackles until 1972.

The joint TV deal with both BBC and ITV continued, although the quantity of matches televised was slightly reduced on the previous two seasons.
Clubs that didn't wish to have league games televised however could opt out of the deal, thus not getting TV money, and Wigan was one such club.

Wigan Final League Position: 17th (Coach: Eric Ashton)
League Champions:
Wakefield Trinity (21-9 v St Helens in replay after 7-7 draw)
Challenge Cup Winners: Featherstone Rovers (17-12 v Barrow)
Lancashire Cup Winners: Wigan (14 - 16-13 v Oldham)
Lancashire League Winners: St Helens
BBC2 Floodlit Trophy Winners: Castleford (7-2 v Swinton)
