Luke Davico (born 16 May 1973 in Gosford, New South Wales) is an Australian former professional rugby league player of Italian descent.[1] He previously played for the Canberra Raiders (where he was named the club's rookie of the year in 1995) and the Newcastle Knights.

Davico made his first-grade debut two days before his 21st birthday in round ten of the 1994 season. He started from the bench in a match against St. George Dragons.

After eleven seasons with the Canberra Raiders, Davico signed a contract with English Super League club, Wigan Warriors. A torn pectoral muscle during a match in August, 2004, prematurely ended his time with the Canberra club. Davico then re-injured the muscle five minutes into a pre-season match for Wigan in January, 2005.[2]

Davico returned to Australia without having played a first-grade game for Wigan. In 2006, Davico signed a two-year contract with the Newcastle Knights.[3] Following seventeen appearances from the bench in 2006 and only one in 2007, Davico retired mid-season.
