Right SS - full back, left SS - neutral. Do you understand why the aeroplane pitched down even with full back sidestick, full NU elevator and THS in heavy nose up position, increasing towards stop?

In reality the PF was aware of the same fact and told them, that he already had full left SS without success. That information was vital as it showed, that correction with aileron alone did not work and helped the captain to refocus on solving the bank problem with rudder input. It took considerable time to unmask this information and it was not visible on any kind of instruments.
Do you understand why the crew had what you call "bank problem"?
