In sport - To fall at the final hurdle. To snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. To go on a bad run of results just when you are a stick-on for winning the league.

Derived from Hibernian Football Club's (wee team in Edinburgh) unerring ability to shoot themselves in the foot. An example being the Scottish Championship/ Premiership playoff final in season 2013/14. Hibernian 2-0 up and cruising from their away tie at Hamilton then contrived to lose the home leg 0-2 and lose the tie on penalies. Hilarious stuff.
Looks like the home team are going to Hibs it here John.
