    Outstanding player, but could improve his maturity. The tik-tok incident showed his immaturity.

    Terrific player. Outstanding leadership and accountability for a young bloke. Best is yet to come

    As a panther's fan, I love Cleary, but he struggles to stand up in the origin moments, I am beginning to ask if he is built for the arena.

    I think it may be time to give Mitch Moses another shout, I think he is the guy NSW need to rely on.

    I know I would. Mitch Moses is HIM!
