Launceston captain Tom Rawlings says his side have to show more self-belief.
The Cornish All Blacks have won just one of their five matches since dropping down to National Two South and host unbeaten Worthing on Saturday.
"We should be the bigger fish in this league, we're not a team that's been promoted," he told BBC Radio Cornwall.
"We have got to start believing in our own abilities. We need to start playing like we know we are able to and like we used to do."
And Rawlings feels that he and his other experienced team-mates must take more responsibility for the side's predicament.
"The senior players have got to start leading from the front a little bit more and pull the squad tighter.
"But one win this weekend would put us right back in the mix and bump us up the table.
"We need a big result ,we need a win, we need to get supporters down to the club and we need to make Polson Bridge a hard place to come and play for the opposition," he added.
