The Thistle is also undefeated in their last three home matches having recorded three successive wins as the hosts. 
Meanwhile, South Africa claimed a 23-18 win over Wales away in their previous match which was an international match on November 6.
Therefore, the Springboks are now undefeated in their last two matches across all competitions having registered two consecutive victories.

“This is a different-looking Scotland team to the one we faced in 2018, although their management is very similar,” said Springboks fly-half Elton Jantjies ahead of the clash against Scotland.
“They will challenge us differently to three years ago, with a bunch of younger players who will be full of energy, alongside a number of very experienced players, and playing against the world champions will be added motivation for them. 
“What will they bring this weekend? We’ll see on Saturday, in the first 10 minutes or 15 minutes, how they want to play against us, and we’ll have to find solutions to that.
“But our focus will be on ourselves, as a group, and to look to improve in certain things we’ve identified, because there is always room for improvement and that is the biggest thing about this group – we just want to get better every single week.”
The last time Scotland and South Africa met was on 17 November 2018. 
The Springboks beat the Thistle 26-20 in an international game that was played at the Murrayfield Stadium.
