Summary:l

Changes ahead of this particular season saw a two division structure come in. The season itself wouldn't begin until 6th October with County Cup Ties and this new Western Divisional Championship making up the fixtures until then. Wigan began their WDC campaign with an easy victory over Liverpool City, despite their summer test tourists to Australia and New Zealand all still being absent until mid September.
