Dom Manfredi scores two tries on his Wigan return

Dom Manfredi ended a two-year injury jinx with a double try-scoring return to action as Wigan Warriors ran out 26-6 victory over Warrington Wolves.

The winger had been on the sidelines for 762 days following a serious knee injury sustained at Castleford Tigers in 2016 but he put that behind him to score two late tries to secure the points for the Warriors.

The opening 40 minutes of this game will not feature in many end-of-season highlight reels, but it was Wigan who led 6-0 the break with a try from nothing from Thomas Leuluai.

Warrington managed to level things in the second half with Stefan Ratchford going over, but Wigan proved to have too much as Ryan Sutton crossed and the combination of Sam Tomkins and George Williams added 10 further points with the boot to record their fifth successive win in the Betfred Super League Super 8s.
