  • Nathan Cleary and Mary Fowler were spotted on a romantic date
  • The Aussie Sport power couple had spent Christmas apart
  • But they were reunited on the Gold Coast on Thursday evening

Mary Fowler and Nathan Cleary enjoyed a post-Christmas date as the Matildas star flew into the Gold Coast after spending the festive period in the tropical north.

NRL superstar Cleary, 26, was spotted with Fowler, 21, and friends at luxury Gold Coast dining spot Burleigh Pavilion on Thursday, with a photo of the pair on Facebook.

Dressed in a baggy white T-shirt, Cleary sat just smiling next to Fowler, wearing a white crop top, in what appeared to be a Happy reunion for the loving couple who were 1,500 miles apart over Christmas.

On December 24, the Matildas star showed her Instagram followers a series of photos and videos she took during her trip to see her loved ones in Cairns, Queensland over the festive break.

Fowler took photos and videos while admiring the region's breathtaking scenery on one of the city's biggest tourist attractions, the Cairns Skyrail.

The trip north to celebrate Christmas with her family came after Fowler had a whirlwind few days in Sydney after flying in from Britain, where she plays for football powerhouse Manchester City.

She had a romantic reunion with Cleary at Sydney airport on December 19, with the footy star greeting her with a kiss before helping her with her bags.

Fowler then talked about her dream of starting a family of her own when she proved to be a big hit with the youngsters at Rise & Shine Kindergarten in the south of the city, after which she and Cleary enjoyed a lunch date at Penrith in the far west of Sydney.

The loved-up couple then looked more in love than ever as they gave each other tips on how to play their respective footy codes during an hour-long training session at an oval near Cleary's home in Penrith.

Both stars looked to the moon to be together and got down to business lovingly as Fowler tested her NRL passing skills and Cleary showed surprising skills with a football.

The couple was recently named Nath-ilda, but the name didn't go down well with fans, with many claiming it was unacceptable because it didn't include Mary Fowler's name.

“This is absolutely the worst possible nickname for couples that they could have come up with. Simply unacceptable IMO,” one Panthers fan wrote on X.

'I think Nathan & Mary should be called Clear Fowl. It also has to do with football,” replied another.

'Omg also makes her work her identity??? I hate it,” said a third.

Cleary and Fowler first attracted attention as a potential couple after being spotted together twice following the Women's World Cup.

Initial sightings included a leisurely stroll along the Nepean River in Penrith, where the 25-year-old NRL sensation and the Matildas forward spent quality time together.

They were also observed sharing ice cream after a promotional event organized by Adidas, a brand that both athletes endorse.

The couple publicly debuted their romance in Perth in October, confirming suspicions from previous sightings.
