The local news at this time was of a meteor which had "caused sensation" in passing throughout Lancashire and Cheshire.  later part of this Meteorite had been found on Halliwell Farm in Appley Bridge. Many had been worried at first that this had been some kind of airship belonging to the Germans but so their was relief to find out it wasn't and that turned to excitement when the piece was apprehended by the local Wigan police and displayed in a shop window in Appley Bridge for the public to view.

Meanwhile on the field, Wigan fell to their first defeat of the season. This despite leading by half time 10-8 and although that lead held for the majority of the second half, the home side scored a try through Corsi that won the game for them. Wigan dropped from top to third in the table with this loss.
