- Mary Fowler was delighted to see Nathan Cleary in the stands
- The NRL superstar was supporting his girlfriend on Wednesday
- The pair went public with their relationship after months of rumours
Nathan Cleary played the supportive boyfriend as the NRL superstar cheered on his new girlfriend Mary Fowler during the Matildas’ clash with Taiwan.
Fowler, with the wind in her sails after going public with Cleary, 25, during an intimate date at a park in Perth on Wednesday, was Australia’s biggest threat in a first half that ended with no goals.
After a halftime team talk from Tony Gustavsson, Fowler returned to the pitch and saw Cleary’s face on the big screen, with the Penrith hero chatting with friends before the start of the second half at HBF Park.
A wide smile spread across her face as she laughed with teammates, clearly pleased to see her new beau in attendance.
That confidence-booster certainly did the trick, with Fowler finding the back of the net early in the second half to put the Matildas in front against their rivals.
Earlier in the day, Fowler and Cleary spent time together in Perth and were seen laying together in the middle of an open park by the water – laughing, hugging, chatting, and drinking from the same water bottle.
At one point, Cleary took his shirt off and Fowler lay on his chest.
