Gregor Townsend says beating South Africa would be his greatest victory

Scotland coach Gregor Townsend believes a victory over the resurgent Springboks at BT Murrayfield on Saturday would be the high point of his 16 months in the job.

There have been a number of notable wins since Townsend took over from Vern Cotter last June, with the thrilling Calcutta Cup triumph over England in February top of the list.
