Scotland vs South Africa LIVE: Stream FREE, TV channel, kick-off time and teams for Autumn International – updates

SCOTLAND are out to continue their good form as they welcome world champions South Africa to Murrayfield in today's early kick-off.

The Scots took the scalp of Australia with a 15-13 win last weekend as they continue on a positive track under Gregor Townsend.

The visiting Springboks meanwhile did what they do best as they ground out a 23-18 win against Wales at the Principality stadium last Saturday.

But that match was tinged with controversy after a pitch invader appeared to deprive Liam Williams of a try for the Welsh.

Callum Rowe was pelted with beer by fuming Dragons fans as he was dragged away by security in Cardiff.

    THISTLE BE PRICKLY

    South Africa captain Siya Kolisi reckons this is the toughest Scotland team he will have ever faced. The World Cup winner made his debut against the Dark Blues in 2013.

    The Springboks won that game plus the four meetings between the teams since.

    But Kolisi said: "I definitely think this is the strongest Scottish side I'll have ever faced.

    "You can see by the way they've been playing, plus the fact they had so many players with the British & Irish Lions.

    "Scotland take their opportunities really well and they play without fear."

    HIGH FIVE FOR FINN

    Finn Russell says Scotland are looking to make it into the world top five with another Autumn Internationals win.

    The fly-half commented: "We've always been up there in the top 10.

    "We want to push to get into the top five, if not higher.

    "If we get the next couple of results that we're looking for and go into the Six Nations we'll be on our way up there and I believe we can. We've got a good belief in the squad.

    "That game on Sunday was one we potentially might have lost in the past, when the narrow margins would go against us. But now we seem to have changed that.

    "There's a lot of excitement building around this team and where we're going.

    "We've been building over the last three, four, five years to get to where we are now and it feels like we're starting to turn a corner in terms of getting wins from more of the narrow games, which is great."

      SOUTH AFRICA SO FAR

      South Africa have played just one game so far on their three-game tour – and what a game it was.

      A classic Test match at Cardiff in front of a packed Wales crowd last Saturday that ebbed and flowed – and in the end it just ebbed in South Africa’s favour.

      The Springboks face England at Twickenham next Saturday, but they can’t take their eye off the ball against a dangerous Scottish side today.

        SCOTS SO FAR

        It’s been a brilliant autumn series for Gregor Townsend’s men so far and Edinburgh has become a bit of a fortress.

        They took Tonga apart a fortnight ago 60-14 and followed up with a famous 15-13 win over Australia last Sunday.

        South Africa are probably the sternest test they face in this slate of games and the year ends with Japan at Murrayfield next weekend.

        HOGG ON BOKS

        Captain Stuart Hogg believes Scotland can follow up their memorable win over Australia if they can outmuscle the Springboks at BT Murrayfield.

        The full-back said: "They are an unbelievable team, they have got some brilliant individual players and they are world champions for a reason.

        "But like everything there are weaknesses within it and hopefully we can exploit that.

        "We need to be patient in what we are trying to do and also stand up to their physicality.

        "If we can stand up to that and outmuscle them we give ourselves a good opportunity of winning."

        WELCOME

        Good afternoon everyone, welcome to our live coverage of this autumn international clash in Edinburgh.

        The high-flying Scottish team welcome a tough and tested Springboks side to Murrayfield in an intriguing encounter this afternoon.

        Scotland are buoyed by thrashing Tonga and then beating Australia last week on a famous Sunday afternoon in Auld Reekie.

        And they’ll be relishing another stiff challenge against South Africa – who beat Wales in a pulsating clash last week.

        It’s another brilliant day of rugby action and it all starts in Edinburgh at 1pm local time.

        Gregor Townsend's side can go fifth in the World Rugby rankings if they can pull off this massive scalp over Rassie Erasmus' Springboks.

        But it will be no mean feat given the way the injury-hit Boks took apart the Lions over the summer.

        And some of these Murrayfield stars will be smarting from that difficult tour of South Africa.

        If you're feeling like an autumnal day in front of the TV with the fire on and a few tinnies then today is the one for you, with three cracking matches to come.

        Stay right there for all the build-up ahead of kick-off.
