Only two fixtures had been played on the previous three weekends due to poor weather. All in all this was only the second game for Wigan in seven weeks. The weather was dampening the mood in the war effort with awful conditions in the French trenches whilst the Germans were launching submarine warfare in an attempt to starve Britain into submission. The move backfired on them though with the Americans on February 3rd deciding to sever diplomatic relations with Germany because their U-Boats were threatening US Ships. On the field here Wigan found a win over Leigh with the loss of their half back Mooney to injury second half being a big factor.
