Wigan welcomed back Jim Leytham, who had missed the last three matches injured, whilst new signing Lew Bradley made his debut on the right wing. Bradley would go on to make 124 appearances for Wigan, the last of which was during the First World War in February 1918. Four months later he perished in the War Effort, just five months before the war ended. He was the only Wigan player to lose his life during the war effort. In the match Wigan had to come from behind at half time to win but Bradley claimed a try on his debut to help Wigan stay top with this fortunate victory that was sealed with a late penalty goal from Jim Sharrock.
