sport news Nathan Cleary and Mary Fowler confirm they're a couple with a VERY romantic ... trends now
Aussie sport's hottest romance went public on Wednesday as Mary Fowler and a shirtless Nathan Cleary removed any doubts they're a couple when they were pictured sharing some tender moments in Perth.
Just a day after Daily Mail Australia exclusively revealed photos of the NRL superstar and his soccer ace girlfriend spending time together before the Matildas' Olympics qualifying match, they took it up several notches as they cuddled in a park.
Mary Fowler left the team's hotel on Wednesday morning, grabbed a coffee and met up with Cleary, who flew into the city to support her as she starred in Australia's big win over the Philippines on Sunday.
They could be 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.
