However, another loss for the Wallabies caused unpleasant scenes off the field when a fan drew his frustrations with a player.
Lukhan Tui backrower was chatting with his family and friends when a fan began to criticize him after the four-point loss to Argentina at CBus Super Stadium in Queensland.
Wallabies coach Michael Cheika said the fan pushed Tui's sister during the incident, Fox Sports reported.
The 21-year-old then asked to take the rest of the season, saying he needed time out of the game after his stepfather's death on Wednesday.
The rower Lukhan Tui was chatting with his family and his family when a fan began to reprimand him after the four-point loss at the CBus Super Stadium in Queensland.
Wallabies coach Michael Cheika said the fan pushed Tui's sister (pictured with Tui) during the incident, Fox Sports reported.
The images of the incident showed that Tui and the fan were physically getting into each other, and at one point the player could be seen trying to grab the fan.
The police arrived after Tui's teammates in the Wallaby team, Jack Maddocks, Marika Koroibete and Samu Kerevi and a member of the Rugby Australia staff were forced to intervene.
Eventually, the ventilator was carried down the throat by another ventilator that was present during the fight.
The fanatic who started the verbal diatribe allegedly brought tears to children who were nearby, according to News.com.au.
Wallaby player Reece Hodge was being interviewed when the skirmish began, according to Fox Sports, and he said: "It's very disappointing and sad to see our fans like that."
The Wallabies coach went to the media after Tui asked to leave the season.

Mr. Cheika said: "It's one thing to get angry with a team … [but] what happened there was that the follower pushed Lukhan's sister.
"Lukhan did not like that, and that's fair."
He said that after the death of Tui's stepfather, what happened was inappropriate.
He said that although the fan probably did not know who he was pushing, "you should not push a child in the crowd anyway."
Argentina won the match 23-19. It was Argentina's first victory on Australian soil for 35 years and reduced Australia to seventh place in the world ranking.
