Is it coincidence that our previous top sporting teams are now on a losing streak all at the same time? Is it that we're between big events and sportspeople are "recharging" their batteries? Even the equestrian [eventing] competitors that were feared by all a few years back are a bit ordinary at the moment. Can we blame the Govt. for losing/choking syndrome I pooh hooed the yachtsmen winning the Americas cup ever again, but they seem to be the only chance of us shining this year. Or will the rugby guys get it together when it's World Cup time?
