Wigan hadn't played a league match for the best part of a
month since losing at Rochdale and returned with another defeat, this time
at nearby Oldham.
This match was still being played "under protest" over
the pay dispute. A special Northern Union Committee meeting on Tuesday 24th
November. It was decided that the original recommended be scrapped and that
wages would be reduced, by a much smaller margin, depending on each clubs
gate receipts instead. Clubs could still negotiate reductions with
individual players if they wished but it wouldn't be en masse. A "relief
fund" was set up also to help smaller clubs. This averted more strike
action, at Wigan at least.
