With just one win from their last four games Catalan Dragons find themselves with just a one point advantage in the race to make the top eight.
Things could get worse before they get better too, with second-placed St Helens the visitors to Stade Gilbert Brutus this weekend.
If the French side are to compete in the top tier of the Super 8s this year then Mathias Pala believes Morgan Escare’s pace could be the key.
Pala doesn’t have as much faith in his countryman’s academic ability though, as we found out in an exclusive chat earlier this season.
Read on to see who the 25-year-old rates and berates among his Dragons team-mates.
