Fijian-born, Redcliffe Junior Petero Civoniceva was a superb prop, he never stopped serving it up to the opposition. Always the consummate sportsman, Civoniceva’s consistency was astonishing. Never tiring, great in hit-ups, and with a characteristic side-on motion he fought for the extra yards.
From 2001 – 2014, Civoniceva played in 33 Origin matches, 45 Tests for Australia and 6 Tests for Fiji. For 10 seasons the Broncos were his sole senior club with Civoniceva and Shane Webcke forming one of the best front-row partnerships in the world.
Civoniceva will share communication skills; health and well being advice; and general resilience training that helped him meet the challenges of elite level sport and were integral to his success and longevity in rugby league.
