Biography:

A product of the Panthers junior development system, Cleary was a member of the club's premiership-winning NYC side in 2015. He played one game for the Panthers ISP side the following year before being handed his NRL debut. He was 19 years old. In 2017 Cleary finished the year as the leading point-scorer in the NRL (228 points) and was the youngest player in over a century to claim the title. He also became the youngest ever player to score 200 points in a season. His meteoric rise continued in 2018 as he made his Origin debut and helped guide NSW to a series victory over Queensland. A year later Cleary again helped NSW to an Origin series victory while he also beat Michael Gordon's club record for most points scored in a match, achieving a 34-point haul (four tries, nine goals) against Newcastle Knights. In 2020 Cleary played a leading role in the team's charge to the 2020 NRL Grand Final, won his first Merv Cartwright Medal, was awarded The Players' Champion by the RLPA and was named in the Dally M Team of the Year.
