Wearing a Wallabies shirt and NRL shorts, it wasn't exactly a great endorsement for the A-League nor Central Coast Stadium's security - who took some time to escort the man from the pitch.

Suffice it to say, social media had a field day with the bizarre sight.

Back on the pitch, Sydney FC would end up winning the match 2-1 courtesy of a Brandon O'Neill stunner.
