Petero Civoniceva may turn out for Fiji rugby league

Petero Civoniceva is contemplating calling quits on his Kangaroos career - and enjoying a representative farewell with his native Fiji.

The 34-year-old has expressed a desire to turn out for Fiji in the 2013 World Cup.

He says this will probably be his last year of representative football in Australia and he's discussed the possibility of lining up for the Bati with Fiji Rugby League.

Civoniceva says he's also keen to help foster the next generation of Pacific Island players and believes it wouldn't take much to set up an academy in Fiji where you could bring players in from other islands for training, get a strength and conditioning coach and a nutritionist to work with them.
