He's the nephew of the Emperor of Lang Park and he's out to secure his spot at Belmore.
Canterbury playmaker Lachlan Lewis is determined to step out of the long shadow of his uncle, Immortal Wally Lewis - and earn a new NRL contract in the process.
The 21-year-old made his debut in last week's pressure-relieving win over Newcastle after coming in for injured marquee man Kieran Foran.
Since entering the NRL system eight years ago, most of the focus has centred around his relation to the former Brisbane, Queensland and Australian skipper.
While Lewis wants to be his own man, and his achievements spoken about in their own rights, he takes the constant comparisons in his stride.
Asked if he was sick of hearing his uncles' name muttered in the same breath as his, Lewis said: "He's just family, he's my uncle.
"Footballing-wise he doesn't really get too involved. The four brothers they played football and they all pitch in when they want to and add their two cents.
"No one gets too emotional with it.
"You know what, it was more Lincoln Lewis when I was in Brisbane - it was more the Home and Away rise to fame. I copped that during school."
Lewis was signed to a development deal with Canberra as a 13-year-old and came up through the ranks.
Ahead of Saturday's showdown with the Raiders, he emphasised it was his decision to leave the nation's capital and he owed a lot of his development to the club.
With his path into first-grade seemingly blocked, he moved to Canterbury for an opportunity.
He is off-contract at the end of the season and with Foran and Jeremy Marshall-King on contract and Jack Cogger arriving from Newcastle next year, he now faces another battle for his future.
"I'm still buzzing off the high of playing," Lewis said.
"Focusing in on the next nine weeks, I want to establish a hold here.
"I'm off contract. That's a big focus for me, to move forward and put my best foot forward. I'm just hoping to have a good nine, solid games."
