The 1948-1949 season began with Wigan welcoming Hunslet
to Central Park. The visitors finished sixth in the previous season but
began this season with their first team players on strike over a wage
dispute. So a team of "juniors", signed only on Friday Night via amateur
forms, played this game instead and unsurprisingly Wigan hammered them
easily. Only 5,000 attended the match.
