A blizzard had seen Wigan's match at Halifax the previous Saturday postponed before this shorter trip to Runcorn. Here, Wigan started brightly with a try from Lew Bradley but Runcorn soon levelled with an effort from Padbury. The only other first half score came from a Jim Sharrock penalty for a 5-3 Wigan lead at the break. A penalty goal from Massey levelled the scores at 5-5 early in the second half but he missed a further shot to put them ahead soon after. The home side fell away though after that with two tries for Frank Walford being added to with ones from Lance Todd and Percy Coldrick to leave a score line that was harsh on Runcorn. Elsewhere, Huddersfield finally lost their first league game of the season with mid table Hull doing the honours 8-2 at the Boulevard. It was their first loss in the league since 30th March 1912 but they still held a two wins advantage over Wigan at the top of the table.
