Seta Tuilevuka (born 27 October 1981 in Fiji) is an American rugby union player for ROC La Voulte-Valence. Tuilevuka plays at centre and was selected to tour with the USA Eagles squad for the Autumn 2010 tour of Europe. From 2010-12, Tuilevuka played for the Montpellier RC, a Top 14 club in France.

Seta is the first player coming from the United States to sign a professional contract without any previous caps for the national team. He came straight from an amateur rugby club, the Las Vegas Blackjacks RFC, to a Top 14 professional French club, Montpellier and thrived.

Tuilevuka signed to play for Beziers for the 2011-12 Pro D2 season.
