1922, this was when the name rugby football league was adopted by by the clubs who broke away from the rugby football union in 1895. Before this the the game was known as the northern rugby football union, or northern union.
However, the Wigan club was among the original twenty two clubs who broke away in 1895, so northern union would have been played in Wigan from 1895 onwards.
