Manfredi Suffers Another Cruel Injury Blow

Wigan Warriors have confirmed that Dom Manfredi has suffered another long term knee injury.

The winger ruptured his Anterior Cruciate Ligament at Castleford Tigers on Friday night meaning he'll be out for the season.

He only returned after surgery on his other knee at the end of last season after two years out of action.

Executive Director, Kris Radlinski: “Dom visited a specialist yesterday who confirmed our worst fears and the injury that he sustained at Castleford Tigers would end his season. This is a devastating blow for Dom and the team.

“Dom only returned from surgery on his other knee towards the end of last year and had the fairy-tale ending at Old Trafford. Now he faces the same journey of rehabilitation.  Our focus is on helping him through this difficult time.
