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.
