Key Match-up: Lewis & Taia go head-to-head

The ever-green Luke Lewis will meet what is arguably his toughest personal assessment this week, in squaring off with the Titans', Zeb Taia.

Taia, a largeley improved player in 2016, has been in damaging form of late - with the Sharks veteran set to have his work cut out on Sunday afternoon.

Lewis though, at his ever-dependable best this season, is slowly and surely working towards the peak of his powers after displaying sensational form throughout 2015.

Once required from the first whistle through til the last, Lewis has taken on a different role this season, playing reduced minutes but with arguably a greater impact.

'The Groova' has crossed for two tries inside five games this season, his happy knack of finding points showing no sign of decline now into his 16th season in the top grade.

In his work done without the ball, Lewis has accumulated the 2nd most 1-on-1 tackles at the Club in 2016, and he can expect plenty of traffic again this Sunday.
