Read this link from the TV company that should most pubicise our sport, they run a piece about the fallen sportsman of WW1 and name practically evey sport bar RL.
I have no idea of the total number of Northern Union players who volunteered and who never made it back.
Does anybody have that info?

For Salford RL casualties see link below
