Wigan's defence of their League Title began with a trip to play Broughton, who were playing for the first time under their new guise of Belle Vue Rangers at the Greyhound Stadium in Manchester. They were still without their test tourists who had missed the back end of the previous season but were able to welcome back Johnny Lawrenson, who had missed the 1945/46 season and also had new signing Ces Mountford in at Stand Off. Tries from Stan Jolley and Gordon Ratcliffe, both converted by Lawrenson, helped Wigan score ten points in the first half but Belle Vue kept in touch with three penalty goals for 10-6 at the break. Lawrenson made it 12-6 with a penalty early second half but Wigan were left sweating to the end after a try from McComas, converted by Thomas, made it 12-11. Wigan hung on despite Lawrenson hitting the bar with a late penalty.
