Both sides are heading into the contest on the back of wins, with England besting Australia 32-15 while the Springboks beat Scotland at BT Murrayfield 30-15 thanks to a ruthless second-half showing.

Brace is supported by Angus Gardner and Frank Murphy on the sidelines while Brian MacNeice is the TMO for the 3:15pm kick-off.

The first game of week four of the Autumn Nations Series sees Scotland take on Japan at BT Murrayfield at 1pm, refereed by Brendon Pickerill.

Paul Williams and Andrea Piardi are Pickerill’s assistants with Stuart Berry on TMO responsibilities.

The second 1pm game, Italy v Uruguay, sees Craig Evans as the man in the middle, supported by Ludovic Cayre and Tual Trainini with Ben Whitehouse in charge of all things TMO.
