FIJI'S captain to the 2013 Rugby League World Cup Petero Civoniceva hopes to inspire the country's sports people with a speech on his experiences at the Fiji Sports Awards tonight.

The National Rugby League legend is the guest speaker for the event and also a nominee for Sportsman of the Year.

And while he does not expect to win the award, he said he was humbled by the recognition of the Fiji Sports Council, Fiji National Sports Commission, Fiji Association of Sports and National Olympic Committee and the Fiji National Rugby League.

"It's a huge honour for me to be nominated alongside the big sports people of Fiji," Civoniceva said.

"It was a huge honour for me to be the captain of the Vodafone Fiji Bati team and play alongside some of the best players produced by this country."

Organising committee chairperson Litiana Loabuka said it was the first time a Fijian would be the guest speaker at the event.

The former Kangaroo prop's playing career spans more than two decades for which he is thankful to his father Petero Sr for making it all possible for him.

Civoniceva hopes to work with the Fiji National Sports Commission to help with the development of the sport in the country.
