World Cup history repeats itself SPORTS TALK JOSEPH ROMANOS To listen to the naysayers, New Zealand's World Cup rugby hopes are hanging by a thread after successive test defeats. The 18-5 loss to South Africa in Port Elizabeth was excused easily enough. But the 25-20 defeat by Aust- ralia over the weekend is not easy to shrug off. Graham Henry had named a full-strength side, recalling all his rock stars, and the Tri-Nations trophy was at stake. So now, apparently, the All Blacks can't win. Zac Guildford should never have been chosen ahead of Hosea Gear, Adam Thompson is the new Reuben Thorne, Sonny Bill Wil- liams is more concerned about securing a lucrative contract next year and the All Blacks are show- ing early signs of choking. Don't believe any of it. The All Blacks weren't great in Brisbane, but they fought back well in the second half after being annihilated in the first 40 minutes. That was heartening. More important, I don't believe the two losses will have the slightest bearing on the Rugby World Cup 2011 results. Just looking at history, the All Blacks couldn't have had a worse lead-up to the 1987 World Cup. There was the hugely divisive 1986 Cavaliers tour of South Africa, and two-match suspensions for so many leading players. There was a series defeat by the Wallabies, notable for the resounding loss in Auckland. Then followed an unimpressive tour of France. Before the World Cup, the All Blacks lost potential captain Jock Hobbs when he was forced into retirement by persistent concus- sions. Before the opening match, the captain, Andy Dalton, pulled a hamstring. He did not play a min- ute of the tournament. From that series of disasters emerged arguably the finest All Black team ever to represent New Zealand. They won the World Cup as they pleased. Looking at other sports, New Zealand's lead-up to the 1992 cricket World Cup, which we part- hosted, couldn't have been worse. They were hammered by England, and there was such disruption in the ranks that the national selectors discussed removing the captaincy from Martin Crowe, even raising the issue with him. From that low point, New Zea- land played brilliantly at the World Cup, with Crowe the tournament's outstanding bats- man and leader. But for bad luck (an untimely injury to Crowe) they would have beaten Pakistan to make the final. What about athletics? Jack Lovelock was riven by doubt in Berlin as the 1936 Olympics began. Should he run the 1500 metres or the 5000m? He fretted and couldn't decide, so team manager Arthur Porritt took upon himself what he called the terrible burden'' of making the decision for his runner. Lovelock was told to run the 1500m and duly won the gold medal in world record time. In 1976 John Walker arrived in Montreal a heavy favourite to win the Olympic 1500m. He looked less of a certainty when he was bundled out of the 800m in an early round, but he bounced back to win a famous gold medal. The lesson is that a poor dress rehearsal does not mean a bad performance on opening night. It can actually work the other way. The loss to Australia will firm the All Blacks' resolve and they'll be a more dangerous beast when the World Cup begins. Students get a kick out of football By PRIYANKA BHONSULE Kickin' off: Gareth Power, from Wainuiomata High, dribbles the ball in a practice football session organised by Special Olympics New Zealand. Special needs students from Wainuiomata and Hutt Valley High School got a chance to play some football this month, thanks to Special Olympics New Zealand. For two hours on August 15, students from both schools went through kicking and dribbling prac- tice before playing team games. The event was part of the Just Play Grassroots Football pro- gramme which has been developed by Oceania Football Confederation in partnership with Special Olympics New Zealand. We have 10 schools taking part in this introductory session and we hope more will join in at a future event next month,'' Special Olympics' lower North Island regional sports co-ordinator Kim Foon says. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students with intellectual disabilities to have a chance to get active. Football is a great sport for people with intellectual disabilities as it provides great conditioning, involves everyone and is a lot of fun.'' Lynley Reynolds, from Wainuio- mata High's Learning Support Department, says the practice session was a wonderful gathering and proved helpful for trainers and students. It gives valuable ideas on how to help students acquire the skills required to play football.'' Ms Reynolds says the students from the Learning Support Depart- ment take part in a range of other activities, including weekly swim- ming, walking and yoga sessions as well as organised PE. The four students from Hutt Val- ley High School have played football in the Sport Wellington AWD (Athletes With Disabilities) weekly competition this year and done well. Special Olympics football develop- ment officer Adam Hayman says all schools taking part in the pro- gramme are provided with in-house training, and a football kit of balls, bibs, cones and speed rings for future development. Heretaunga, Upper Hutt, St Pat's, Rongotai, Onslow, Mana and Nae- nae colleges and Wellington High School are also involved in this pro- gramme.
