Any word on Chee-kam

Anyone have any info on Chee? It’s not great to witness a head injury like that and hope he’s recovering well. Best wishes for a speedy recovery mate.

His partner posted a photo on instagram of her with him in hosp giving a thumbs up. Looks ok, but must be given some time off I imagine.

Cheers mate.

Madge said he’s ok 👍

Very sad to see that tonight. Best wishes to him

That was uncomfortable viewing. Thought it was Mbye at first, till I realised he was on the other side of the field. Didn’t even see him come on. Must have only been on for 1 set.

Thanks for sharing.

Wests Tigers forward Michael Chee-Kam has returned home from hospital after suffering a sickening head knock in the first half of Thursday night’s loss to the Eels.He posted on social media on Friday to assure fans he was OK and on the road to recovery.

The Tigers had earlier announced the second-rower was “now home from hospital and recovering well from last night’s incident. He will continue to be monitored closely by the club’s medical staff”.

Chee-Kam had just come onto the field for his first stint but got his head in an awkward position while attempting a tackle on Shaun Lane in the 27th minute. The game was stopped for several minutes while Chee-Kam was taken from the field on a medicab.

Chee-Kam was one of a host of casualties from Friday night’s match. Eels back-rower Ryan Matterson and Wests Tigers fullback Adam Doueihi also failed HIA’s after head knocks. All three will need to pass concussion protocol to be able to play next week.

Just heard on fox that he had scans and he’s all good , great news

The question now becomes whether he will be available next week, although with the personnel we have coming back, I’d suggest he won’t be in the top 17 next week.

Does he have epilepsy or something or is having a fit after a concussion normal? So glad he’s ok.

Surely you would have to give him a rest, even purely for optics.

Yes people can suffer a seizure after a head knock. I severe head injury can actually cause epilepsy to develop.

Holy crap. Surely a month off at the very least after that reaction.
