A footy fan has been charged after he allegedly climbed on top of a Sydney Cricket Ground stand during the rugby test between the Wallabies and England.

Footage circulating on social media shows the man on the roof of the Bill O’Reilly Stand as the blockbuster match kicked off Saturday night.

During the second half, he seemed to urinate at the big screen while playing on his phone.

Daniel King, 31, was arrested and taken to Surry Hills Police Station, where he was charged with two offenses.

“At about 9:20 p.m. Saturday, July 16, a man was at a sports stadium in Moore Park when he allegedly climbed the top of a stadium scoreboard and onto the roof of a spectator stand,” a NSW Police Department spokesman said.

“Officers associated with Surry Hills Police Area Command and Police Rescue attended and safely removed the man a short time later before he was arrested.”

Mr King has been charged with behaving in [an] offensively in/near public places and climbing on buildings in planned areas without permission.

He has been released on bail to appear in court again on July 25.

The incident was one of a number of wild events during the decisive Test, with England beating the Wallabies 21-17 to win the inaugural Ella-Mobbs Cup.

In another heated duel, England coach Eddie Jones went into a fiery confrontation with a Wallabies fan, who called him a “traitor.”

Footage posted to social media showed a man in a yellow cap and a beer in his hand sledding Jones, who coached the Wallabies between 2001 and 2005.

As his security guard tried to stop him, Jones pushed past to attack the man at the fence.

‘What did you say? What did you say,’ cried an enraged Jones.

“Come here and say it. Come here and say it. Come here and say it.’

The fan seemed shocked by Jones’ reaction and withdrew.

The coach made no mention of the incident in the post-match press conference, but after their Brisbane Test victory, he said he would take great pleasure in silencing the crowd.

It came after England captain Courtney Lawes said his team was motivated by ‘smack’ statements by some Australian players in the media in the lead up to their SCG victory.

“We’ve seen a lot of things in the press about some of our players and what they said,” Lawes said.

“Some people target Gengey, (prop Ellis Genge) some people call us Poms and some don’t.

“It’s all fuel for our tank. I think any good team uses that as motivation.’
