Beaten 10-2 by Leigh at Gilbert-Brutus this Saturday evening, the Catalan Dragons, sixth in the Super League standings, can no longer do it. Unable to score, Benjamin Garcia and his team are in trouble. Interview with the captain of the Dracs who was the first to introduce himself at a press conference.

Once again you fall home. However, you were warned…

Yes, we knew we had to take action, maybe we didn’t take it. We haven’t managed to score yet.

That’s twice you’ve played Leigh without scoring a single try. How do you explain this zero points?

It is difficult to explain. We will have to get back on track quickly. The coach has spoken, the week will change and we will train more. Despite that, we have to stay united, because there are thirteen matches left. It’s up to us not to get discouraged and I’m sure that as soon as we find this spiral of victory again, it can quickly turn around in our favor.

Don’t you feel like you’re too nervous when it comes time to wrap things up?

However, in training, we repeat and we achieve things. But maybe on match day we don’t dare enough and we struggle to find each other. A whole series of details make it impossible to score.

Doesn’t the problem come from the game system?

No. It’s hard to explain honestly. You just have to work, stay in what you do, how do you prepare for the match? Are we analyzing the opposing team enough? We will continue, but we will stay united.

“We must not blame the half-backs, the full-backs or the wingers”

How are you coping with the situation in midfield?

It’s difficult. We have moments where we dominate, but we can’t score. We sometimes force certain patterns and it becomes frustrating. In the middle, it’s exhausting too because we do a lot of work and we bring the balls up. But we can’t find that trigger to break down these defenses.

Isn’t your role as captain to find the trigger in this moment?

We must not blame the halfbacks, the backs or the wingers. In this situation, the best thing to do is to look at what you are doing personally. I don’t like to say, it’s so-and-so’s fault. If I did a better job on the ground, perhaps the work of others would be simplified too. You must first look at yourself before looking at what others are doing.
