Penrith halfback Nathan Cleary is in hot water after photos emerged showing the young gun breaking social distancing restrictions.
A day after Melbourne winger Josh Addo-Carr and Rabbitohs fullback Latrell Mitchell apologised for ignoring social distancing rules, Cleary has been caught in a storm of his own.
Channel 9 reported friends gathered at Cleary’s house on Anzac Day, and produced photos showing him with at least five females.
It is forbidden in NSW to gather in groups of more than two with people you don’t live with. Cleary and the people in the photos were not staying 1.5m away from each other as required.
Nine rugby league reporter Danny Weidler spoke to Cleary and said: “He’s explained to me that they are some of his friends. They popped into his place on Anzac Day on their way to getting an Uber.
“He realised pretty quickly that this was not a situation that he should be in and after a short stay they left.
“He is very, very apologetic about what has happened. He knows he has done the wrong thing and he takes full responsibility for all of that.”
