Modern Rugby League was born with major rule changes in the off season. A meeting of the committee on June 12th decided that teams would be reduced from 15 to side to 13 a side with the ideal being to "decrease the number of scrummages".  Rucks and mauls were also abolished and replaced by the play-the-ball. Wigan made hay under the new rules with a spanking of Barrow on the opening day of the 1906-1907 season at Central Park setting a new record victory for the club. The previous record of 51-0 had only been set against Wakefield the previous April.
