The 1918–19 Northern Rugby Football Union season was the first season of rugby league football following a break during the Great War. The ban on competitive matches was removed in September 1918, but official games did not regularly restart until January 1919.[1] The season consisted of the Lancashire League and Yorkshire League, but the Championship did not restart until the 1919–20 season.

Rochdale Hornets won the Lancashire League, and Hull won the Yorkshire League. Rochdale Hornets beat Oldham 22–0 to win the Lancashire Cup, and Huddersfield beat Dewsbury 14–8 to win the Yorkshire Cup.
