Petero Civoniceva ( /ˈpɛtʃroʊ sɪvənəˈsiːvʌ/; born 21 April 1976), is an Australian professional rugby league footballer who currently plays for the Redcliffe Dolphins in the Queensland Cup. A Queensland State of Origin and Australian international representative prop forward, in 2009 he broke the record for most international matches for Australia of any forward in history. Civoniceva played his club football for the Brisbane Broncos, with whom he won the 1998, 2000 and 2006 NRL Premierships, as well as for the Penrith Panthers, whom he captained. The Petero Civoniceva Medal is awarded to the Australian Fijian rugby league player of the year.

The correct Fijian pronunciation of his surname is "thee-vo-ni-there-va" ( /ˈðɪvənəˈðɛvʌ/) as the Fijian ‘c’ is pronounced as a ‘th’. However for ease of pronunciation his surname is usually said with the 'c' sounded as an 's' as in the usual English pronunciation of the letter.
