He met up with Cleary this week in Melbourne, as the high-profile sporting couple continues their long-distance relationship.
They have been rumored to be dating since last August, before finally becoming official in January.
Cleary, who virtually won the NRL grand final for the Panthers in October, is a private person but acknowledged in a recent interview that his love life is now a constant topic of conversation for many fans.
‘(Media attention) comes with the territory. “It’s something I can’t control,” he said.
“I just have to move on and not make a big deal out of it.”
Fowler is now believed to be back in England, but this week the winger found the back of the net on Wednesday night in Australia’s 10-0 win over a hapless Uzbekistan.
