Oopps sorry I was in a rush to leave for work and I have copy and pasted 
the urls off the wrong post, meant to do the ones that you mentioned.

The problem I had before has gone, but I think there is a problem still 
but not with the code you wrote I believe this would work, I think its 
to do with my register_taxonomy, have pasted it here 

On the draw results page everything works just as it should on the ball 
statistics page it doesn't.

I can only think that its down the rewrite part in the $args for the 
register taxonomy, as I would like the urls to be 
http://www.domain.com/ball-statistics/lotto and 

Draw Results works perfectly and am sure the Ball Statistics will also 
once have fixed the rewrite part as I think that's the issue.

ball-statistics cpt I get :-
array(1) { ["attachment"]=> string(5) "lotto" }

draw-results cpt I get :-
array(2) { ["post_type"]=> string(12) "draw-results" ["game"]=> 
string(5) "lotto" }
