- Picked up a knee injury against Castleford in August 2016, which cut short his season and in a run of bad luck he picked up another injury on his return to the Reserves side in August 2017.
- A pacey winger who has explosive power and a silky technique to beat any defence on their own line, as seen in the victory vs Warrington in September 2018 when he made his comeback with two tries.
- Signed a new three-year deal with Wigan ahead of the 2019 season.
- In more bad luck, he suffered another anterior cruciate ligament injury – this time to his other knee as opposed to the previous two injuries, in a defeat to Castleford Tigers in April 2019.
- In 2020 Manfredi made 11 appearances, scoring three tries across a disjointed season. The winger’s season was cut short through injury, ruling him out of the Play-Offs and the Grand Final vs St Helens.
