Michael Chee Kam (born 26 February 1992) is a New Zealand professional rugby league footballer who currently plays for the Wests Tigers in the National Rugby League. He primarily plays at second-row, but can also fill in at centre, and previously played for the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles.
Born in Auckland, New Zealand, Chee Kam is of Samoan and Chinese descent. He played his junior rugby league for the Mount Wellington Warriors, before being signed by the Melbourne Storm.
After playing in the lower grades at the Melbourne Storm, Chee Kam joined the Canberra Raiders in 2010. From 2010 to 2012, he played for the Raiders' NYC team. In November and December 2010, he played for the Australian Schoolboys. In May 2012, he signed a 3-year contract with the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles starting in 2013. On 21 August 2012, he was named at second-row in the 2012 NYC Team of the Year.
In Round 26 of the 2014 NRL season, Chee Kam made his NRL debut for the Sea Eagles against the North Queensland Cowboys.
On 3 August 2015, after limited opportunities with the Sea Eagles, Chee Kam signed a 1-year contract with the Wests Tigers starting in 2016. After being told he was unwanted by Manly, he played 4 games for them towards the end of the season. He said, "I didn't think they were going to give me those games that I played at the end after they told me that, so I was pretty happy with those couple of games that I got. I used that to build my confidence and get some experience playing at the top level."
In Round 9, Chee Kam made his Tigers debut against the South Sydney Rabbitohs. On 25 May, he re-signed with the Tigers on a 1-year contract.
With Tim Simona de-registered by the NRL, and Jamal Idris lacking the fitness to play 80 minutes, Chee Kam was named at centre for the opening rounds of the season. He said, "I remember when I was on the fringes and seeing a couple of boys come off I would get a little opportunity and you have to make the most of it. I'm trying to feed off that. This is a small opportunity to hold this position and I need to make the most of it."
In April, Chee Kam extended his contract to the end of the 2019 season, saying, "I feel like I’ve made a family here, I’m really close with all the boys and have made some great friendships and it’s exciting to know I’ll be here for a while longer. I want this to be my last club and I’m really grateful and blessed to have been given this opportunity."
