Rugby Union: BT Premier: DONS CAN CEL-EBRATE DOUBLE.

ABERDEEN rugby boss Brian Clark has tipped his men to copy the city's soccer shock-troops today by becoming party- poopers.

They face unbeaten Glasgow Hawks at Rubislaw in the last BT Premier clash of the campaign.

And Clark believes they can do to the champions what the Dons did to Celtic in midweek.

The manager said: "We are ready to complete the double! All records come to an end and we can be inspired by what the football boys achieved at Parkhead."

Hawks will use the match as a warm-up for next weekend's BT Cup Final against Dundee at Murrayfield - and coach Peter Wright insisted they will not be holding anything back.

He said: "If we had lost a couple of league games, we might have used some reserve players - but we are determined to go through unbeaten."

GHA head to Hawick needing a single point to stay in the top flight. But player-coach Andrew Plastow stressed: "We are going for an outright and decisive win."
