Former Fiji Bati captain Petero Civoniceva was among six players named as inductees into the NRL Hall of Fame last night.
The recently appointed Fiji NRL board member logged 309 NRL games for the Brisbane Broncos and Penrith Panthers and made 33 State of Origin appearances for Queensland.
The 42-year-old also represented Australia and Fiji at test level.
Mark Graham, Cliff Lyons, Steve Menzies, Ricky Stuart and Gorden Tallis have also been recognised for their playing achievements and will join the 100 inaugural members from 2008.
The six will be formally inducted at a ceremony on the first of August, which will also announce up to two new Rugby League Immortals.
