Sea Eagles teen hospitalised after chest pains

A MANLY teenager is recovering in hospital after fears he was having a heart attack in an SG Ball match against the Rabbitohs.

Playing fullback for the Sea Eagles against South Sydney at Erskineville Oval on Saturday, Alan Tuigamala was treated for chest pains, with concerns around his welfare halting play for almost 20 minutes.

According to a statement released by Manly, Tuigamala was subsequently taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital for tests and is now "resting comfortably with his mother and girlfriend by his bedside".

"The Manly Sea Eagles will monitor Tuigamala's condition closely and he will need to be medically cleared before he contemplates playing again," the statement said.

"There were some suggestions that he may have suffered a heart attack but subsequent tests seemed to indicate that was not the case.

"Manly Warringah Sea Eagles will continue to update on his progress when possible."
