Gregor Townsend's men showed their mettle against Australia, edging a game that was neck and neck from the word go. Debutant Ewan Ashman and Hamish Watson got the tries, and Finn Russell decided it with a penalty to take Scotland to four wins in a row.

The Wallabies did the double over South Africa in September, but the Springboks made a statement in Cardiff with a hard-fought win over the Six Nations champions.

Malcolm Marx decided a magnificent game with a 74th-minute try that gave the Springboks the lead for the first time, and Elton Jantjies sealed it with his boot. South Africa haven't lost to Scotland in over a decade, but the Dark Blues are a team on the rise, with serious top-five ambitions. 

This should be a cracker, so follow our guide as we explain all the ways to get a rugby live stream, including ways that you can watch Scotland vs South Africa for FREE.
