When did you first learn about rugby league?
Growing up in Auckland, New Zealand we care a bit more about league than the rest of the union-ized population.

How did you become a Cobra?
My girlfriends dad sent me the link for the Cobras facebook when he heard I was going to check out the Amsterdam union team.

Do you support a professional team or have a favourite player?
The NZ Warriors by birth, but adopted the South Sydney Rabbitohs when I was at high school (pre-2014 premiership era – bandwagon disclaimer).

Which team do you look forward to playing the most and why?
Any team I play wearing the Cobras jersey

What is your personal goal this season?
To get amongst it

When did you last score a try?
Ages ago

Do you have an opposing player that you love to play against or have a rivalry with?
Not yet, but applications will be open very soon

If you had to be one of the other Cobras for a week, who would it be and why?
Stefan, so I could understand his fascination with Phillips steam generators.

What was your most embarrassing moment on the field?
Running a kicking tee onto the field during a union game, before realising they dropkick to start the game and awkwardly jogging past a confused referee and team.

What was your best one?
Having the referee award my try in a high school final to a chorus of “bullshit!” from opposition supporters.

Which cobra is the funniest?
Dave, Daan, Dutch guys who name begin with the letter D 😉

Which Cobra is most likely to avoid paying for a round?
I feel like everyone is hyper aware about becoming known as “the guy who doesn’t pay for a round” at the moment. Time will reveal all.

Which training drill do you dread the most?
I know them as malcolms, but basically the up down shuttles thingy.

Do you have a nickname?
Not yet from Cobras, but apparently I’m on track to inheriting the high shot tackler mantle.

How would you describe yourself in one word?
