Questions with a Cobra: Stefan Armas

Name: Stefan Armas
Age: 23
Nationality: Moldovan
Occupation: Student
Position: Fullback

When did you first learn about rugby league?
I first learned about league during the first training with the Cobras – back then still not being aware of the Big difference between league and union

How did you become a Cobra?
I decided to join the cobras as I was very interested in Rugby as it is not as popular in my home country. The Cobras seemed like a very friendly first step into the rugby world – was the probably the final step as well

Do you support a professional team or have a favourite player?
Don’t have a favourite team nor a favourite player … I’m more into practising the sport rather than watching it (but will never decline a proposition to watch a game with the lads)


Which team do you look forward to playing the most and why?
Probably the Dolphins since the learning curve of those guys goes exponentially … Like damn ! So I’m very curious to see what has changed since the last time we confronted them.

What is your personal goal this season?
To score a try in a non-friendly match 😁 (and focus more on offensive)

When did you last score a try?
No clue – I guess the last friendly games that we had – we made a legendary duo with James it worked out marvellously and it yielded about 5 tries from me

Do you have an opposing player that you love to play against or have a rivalry with?
For my opposing player I would choose both Rubem & Ari from Harderwijk – they are both great fullbacks and I get to interact with them rather often on the field

If you had to be one of the other Cobras for a week, who would it be and why?
I would choose Ciaran ! That way we will make sure that Ciaran shows up to training that week!

What was your most embarrassing moment on the field
There was a total fail moment once, I got tackled very badly by one of the Pitbulls so I completely lost any idea of where I was – nevertheless I stood up and played the ball – played the ball in the complete opposite direction!

What was your best one?
The best one already mentioned (the Cavel – Armas duo). Funny thing both these happened in the same game

Which Cobra is the funniest?
Dave is probs the funniest because its Dave

Which Cobra is most likely to avoid paying for a round?
I’ll probs avoid paying cause I’m a broke ass student

Which training drill do you dread the most?
Fitness drills 🙁 but I hope this will change soon

Do you have a nickname?
Stefan: Thank god no, and don’t ask Daan if I have one!
Daan: The glorious Gyppo or the raging Roma

How would you describe yourself in one word?
