Nathan Cleary is one of the NRL’s most talented young players, and while he’s getting noticed on the footy field, the 20-year-old is also navigating plenty of attention off the field.

Since news of his selection broke, the young, single player has copped an onslaught of attention from female suitors on his social media pages.
