Samoa international Michael Chee Kam has signed a new contract with Wests Tigers until the end of 2021.

The 27-year-old has become a key figure for the Tigers in recent seasons, missing just six matches since the start of the 2017 season.

He made his international debut for Samoa in the 2018 Pacific Test against Tonga.

On his new deal, Chee Kam commented: “I couldn’t see myself playing anywhere other than Wests Tigers.

“I didn’t want to go anywhere else and this is home for me now.

“The coaching staff have shown a lot of faith and belief in me, and I’m really excited to play for them and my teammates and grow as a result of that.

“I can see where this team is getting to right now and I want to be a part of that. The club is in a really good place going forward and I want to bring the success that I know is there.”
