Bottom line is Catalans are terrible.

And Kasiano is the worst.

Is it possible that there is some sort of betting scam going on?

You keep thinking they’re going somewhere , and then they regress . Must be very frustrating 

The annoying thing is we know they can do much, much better than this but they simply can’t be assed.

They were very good at the Nou Camp, for example. Kasiano was immense.

But that was three months ago. They - and he - have gone backwards since then. They are lazy feckers.

I thought shoulder charges had been outlawed; no attempt to use the arms there?

They don't play as a team, terrible discipline and lack leadership on and off the field.

Quite. They seem more interested in (late) hits than points.

Don’t think so. Catalans just don’t want it enough.

But the errors look so unforced and for the 2nd consecutive game.

Shocking performance from Catalans How can McNamara justifiably keep his job next year? The Challenge Cup win was a year ago.

Gigot and Bird will be gone next year, and Drinkwater may be back to join James Maloney in the halves. But with McNamara remaining as coach I can't see Catalans winning any silverware.

Catalans could have a number of new coaching options given the number of unemployed coaches in the NRL --- Shane Flanagan and Nathan Brown being the most prominent.

Some might suggest that its down to the RFL's Operation "Fill Old Trafford" - suspend Samkins and Micky Mac to disrupt the side that thumped Wire 30-10 so they won't get in the top 5 . But they were poor before that .

I think this result more or less confirms that London will be relegated.

Not really.

If London wins two of  its next three games, and Wakefield loses its next two games against Wigan and Warrington (likely), and finally loses its last round game against London at Wakefield, then Wakefield will be relegated.

If London wins its next three games (Leeds at home, Hull KR away, Wakefield away) then Wakefield or Hull KR will be relegated.

If Catalan want people to take them seriously they have to change their attitude.

The best way to do that would be to sack McNamara and appoint Shaun Wane as head coach. It would then be change you attitude or change your club!

Waney could get that lot to finals. They have a lot of talent and Wane has proved he can get teams to finals and win them!

I would bet Smith got into them at half-time that all they had to do was let Catalan's keep giving penalties away and keep knocking them over, the advantage of having a decent kicker.

What do you reckon McBanana said? Stick to the game plan and continue to play like a disinterested, badly coached rabble, give away as many penalties as you possibly can and our process will see us through.

If he said any different his shambolic set of player's, you can't call them a team, pay him no heed, either way he should be out on his ear?

I called it at the time of signing Kasiano. Catalans just never learn! There's a reason guys like him (and Dave Taylor and many others) end up there, and it is never to play good football, win things, or teach younger players. It is because they've lost all dedication and discipline to play top level rugby league, despite all their talent. They need a final pay day and the south of France looks nice... They drag the whole team down. When someone has the ability to be one of the best players around, but is instead stuck in reserve grade, there's a good reason!! Catalans just never learn.
