Chee Kam: Improved accountability behind resilience

Dan Talintyre

Wests Tigers utility Michael Chee Kam says an improvement in team accountability is behind his side's noticable lift in resilience over the past few months of football.

Having trailed 20-6 against the Sea Eagles the week before and 16-0 against the Roosters on Saturday, before storming back to lead both contests, Chee Kam reveals where the new never-say-die attitude of Wests Tigers has come about new Head Coach Ivan Cleary.

"I think holding each other accountable has been the main thing for us," he said.

"We have a lot of video sessions and meetings, and everyone is not shy to speak up.

"If one of the boys is not there at the right spot he should be, or is not pushing up, we call each other out and I think that's really helped the boys out individually and as a team too.

"The last couple of months we've really shown that resilience.

"I think it's something we're improving in each week — we've just got to build off that. The loss was really disappointing, but we can take the positives out of it and move on to next week.

"I think it's showing that we're improving, and how our defence is keeping us in games."
