Fowler and Cleary went public with their relationship in November last year, but they will be apart over the winter as Cleary will play in the NRL in Australia and Fowler will play in England and the Paris Olympics.

Fowler and Cleary have enjoyed mixed fortunes in their respective sporting careers in recent times.

Cleary’s Penrith Panthers have won the last three NRL premierships, but were unsuccessful. beaten by Super League champions Wigan last weekend during the World Club Challenge – the only trophy that eluded the Panthers.

Meanwhile, Fowler excels for the Matildas every time she takes the field, but she is out of favor for his club team Manchester City.

Fowler has not started for Man City in the English WSL since mid-November, but Matildas coach Tony Gustavsson suggested his performances for Australia would put pressure on his club manager to it offers more opportunities.

Matildas and Man City teammate Alanna Kennedy said Fowler was able to perform despite his lack of club minutes due to settling into the Matildas environment.

“I think for Mary, it’s an exciting time for her, for all of us, to come back, just to be able to play in front of all the fans and play for Australia… we love it,” Kennedy said.

“For her, I’m sure she’s very comfortable and feels the freedom to be able to express herself on the pitch, whether or not she’s had minutes at City.

“She’s just an incredible player. I think every chance she gets, she will always create something in any game she plays.

Gustavsson did not want to comment specifically on Fowler’s fate at Man City, but said it would affect players’ confidence if they were unable to play regular minutes for their clubs.

But he added that the Matildas’ good performance could force the hand of the club’s management, who were not ignorant of international football.

“As a coach of a national team, you obviously don’t have control over that… but what impresses me very, very much is that there are a lot of players who have missed minutes coming into this environment but still performing well, and I think that’s the case. It’s an honor for the player, but I also think it’s an honor for our environment,” Gustavsson said.

“Because when you come in with a lack of minutes and lack of form and maybe you lack confidence, but you come into that environment where you are valued, you trust the team… the tactics and you are capable to play with limited minutes – that makes me a little less worried.

“I would love to see more minutes, and I also think the club coaches watch the international games, and I think a lot of our players with these two performances send very clear messages to the clubs: ‘I want to play’.
