Now at home, the 28-year-old will continue to be monitored closely by the club's medical staff.

Wests Tigers Coach Michael Maguire provided an update after the game.

“He’s gone to hospital to get checked up but he’s ok,” said Maguire.

“It’s not nice having one of your players in that position.

"Chee Kam is a great character and the players are really fond of him too. They were all concerned there but it’s nice to know he’s ok.”
