Michael Chee-Kam

For some players, a change of clubs is the best thing that can happen to them and that was the case for Michael Chee-Kam.

Starting out at Manly, he seemed destined for bigger things but form and injury got in the way. A move to the Wests Tigers then happened and that has proven to be a great blessing for the back-rower.

Just recently, he made his club debut and with two full games for the Tigers under his belt, he is pleased to extend his stay with the club for a further year.

“I’m really excited to get another year with the boys, especially with this great Club,” Chee Kam said.

“They gave me the opportunity last year to sign with them and now I’m repaying the faith by staying around and putting my best foot forward.”

Since joining the club, Chee-Kam has felt right at home and has enjoyed the transition.

“Everyone has been really welcoming, right across the whole the club, there is a great bunch of people at Wests Tigers,” he said.

“Everyone is talking about team and I think that goes across the whole Club – everyone has been welcoming and I’ve really enjoyed playing footy again.”

Tigers coach Jason Taylor has had a close eye on Chee-Kam and praised his ability and form.

“Michael has been a great addition to our roster this season,” Taylor said. “He has worked really hard during pre-season and I’m really excited that he has re-signed for another year.

“Michael is a pleasure to have a the Club and it’s a great sign for the future of Wests Tigers that we have players like him wanting to stay here,” he said.
