Apparently he is due to play in this game:

Shows the value of the reserve competition. I doubt a championship side would want to take on a player on the road to recovery and I doubt Wigan would want to send him out on loan anyway as Wigan would want to monitor and manage his comeback closely.

Wane has just said on Wigan t.v that he expects Manfredi to get a short amount of game time on Saturday in the reserves.
I remember a few years back Pat Richards making his comeback in a reserve game at Leeds, again only playing about 30 mins.

Williams and Sutton to return to first team duty on Friday with a debut for a player. I expect it could be Ollie Partington or Liam Byrne, both have been going well in the academy/reserves.

I’m elated he is on the way back. Whether or not he comes back the same player is, at the moment irrelevant. I think all he’s been through in the past 3yrs physically and mentally would have taken a huge toll on him and his close friends/family and it’s a credit to him for his sheer guts and determination, and the coaching staff at Wigan for him making his long awaited and well deserved return.

Fingers, toes and everything else crossed for him that he comes through the game fine. If ever there was a player who deserves a bit of luck over the next few years it’s him.

Yep, the standard is completely irrelevant. His mental state when he takes a ball in or sets off on a big run will be seriously tested and hopefully he’ll come through with flying colours. After that, he can think about getting back to fitness and only after the mental aspect his game is 100% should he start to contemplate fighting for a first team spot. After over 2 years our, he needs to be managed one step at a time.

Keeping everything crossed he gets through the game and can sit with a smile on his face at the end of it. It must surely be the time for his luck to turn.

Conversely, Tautai banned for 4 games after pleading guilty to dangerous contact! Hope Sutton’s fit!

Fantastic news about Dom.

Was a genuine joy to watch, a player with ability to score a try from anywhere. I honestly thought, if it wasn't for his terribly injury, he'd be pushing for an England spot.

Game in progress. He plays and has just scored.

EDIT - He’s just scored again.

2 tries,the second was from a great back of the hand pass which he finished well.
