Nathan Cleary sat at Perth's HBF Park to cheer on his girlfriend and Matildas star Mary Fowler against China Taipei on Wednesday night - and it may be one of the last chances the couple have to see each other over the next six months.
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 and held hands.
Since dating rumours first surfaced back in August, the nation has been obsessed with the couple, but their packed playing schedules will mean they will now have to negotiate a long distance relationship for the next six months.
Nathan Cleary and Mary Fowler may only get to see each other once over the next six months due to the 17,000km distance between their homes
The loved-up couple have busy playing schedules with their respective clubs - but they will have a great chance to reunite before the end of the year
Manchester City has at least a further 21 games between now and May 18, when they finish up their season.
Cleary is expected to attend training for the Panthers on November 22 ahead of their season kicking off in the first week of March, although the injury he sustained in the grand final could set his return back.
The loved-up couple will have a brief window to see each other over the Christmas period, with Fowler's season pausing for a month and Cleary getting a two-week break.
It is anticipated that Fowler will fly to Australia as she is booked in to appear at a Matildas fan event at Sydney's CommBank Stadium on December 21.
Unfortunately, the couple won't be able to catch up in February when Penrith travel to the UK to play Wigan in the World Club Challenge - as Fowler will be in Australia with the Matildas for Olympic qualifying matches.
The Manchester City star and NRL premiership winner have been romantically linked since being spotted together twice following the Matildas' World Cup campaign.
They first attracted attention as a potential couple when they were seen together on a leisurely walk along the Nepean River in Penrith in Sydney's west.
Fowler is due to fly back to the UK on Thursday to play for Manchester City - and she's not due back in Australia until December

The pair were then seen sharing an ice cream following a promotional event hosted by Adidas, a brand both athletes endorse.
The NRL star also liked a post Fowler put up on Instagram on Monday - the first time he's taken that step on social media.
Fowler posted a series of images from the Matildas' Olympics qualification matches, which were liked by a host of teammates and fellow athletes, including Cleary.
