Wigan’s Dom Manfredi has offered an apology to the club’s supporters following the recent announcement that he’ll be out for the rest of the season.

Manfredi has suffered a recurrence of the ACL injury that previously scuppered his 2018 campaign and will undergo surgery to correct the issue.

In a Tweet, Manfredi said: “Can’t thank you all enough for the messages of support, I’m overwhelmed.

“I want to apologise to Wigan Warriors and the fans that I can’t play any further part this season.

“I’m devastated, although I’m lucky to have such a good family, friends and club backing me.

“My biggest challenge yet is in front of me and I’m going to put everything into getting back to being the player I know I can be.

“Thanks again for the support.”
