The Northern Union Committee met again on Tuesday 8th September to discuss whether play should continue under the war emergency. It was decided to continue with league action "as it is impossible for all to take up active war service and it is though unwise to have no relaxation from the more serious objects of life". It was recommended that clubs would offer services for recruitment before and after matches whilst also encouraging playing to enlist and fill their teams with players from their own districts "even though they may not be such talented players". What would transpire would be that this season would conclude in full as an official championship but as it wore on more and more players went to enlist, attendances fell away dramatically and enthusiasm for playing competitive sport whilst war casualties were mounting up would begin to die.

On the field, Wigan made it two wins out of two with an easy victory over Barrow at Central Park.
