It might not happen soon, but some time in the future Tigers coach Ivan Cleary wants to coach son, Nathan, to form a father-son coach-player combination.

Speaking to, Cleary stressed he isn't planning to lure Nathan away from the Panthers, but both of them have made it clear that somewhere down the track they would like to work together.

“Basically we’re both coming to the opinion that we’d like to play together. It’s just a question of timing really,” he said.

“...The further (his career) is going I’m getting more confident it won’t be a problem. But we’re not thinking about it too much right now. Probably in 12 months time it will be more relevant.”

The Penrith youngster still has two years remaining on his contract, but negotiations on a lucrative five-year $3 million contract extension that would keep him at the club until the end of 2024 have gone on hold.

Cleary Jnr. is reportedly hoping his value increases over the next few seasons, and the Panthers could be up for a fist fight when he is free to talk with other clubs in November next season.

If the Cleary's do unite, it will be the first father-son combination since John and Martin Lang at Cronulla and Penrith (2002-04).
