Peter Provan (born 1936) is an Australian former professional rugby league player for St. George Dragons, Balmain Tigers and Australia. He primarily played at Lock. Provan and his older brother, Norm Provan, are the only pair of brothers to lead grand-final winning teams on victory laps of the Sydney Cricket Ground; [cite news|author=Brad Forrest |publisher="St George and Sutherland Shire Leader"|title=Immortal designate: Raper pushes for Provan ahead of Andrew Johns |url= |accessdate=2008-04-20|date=2008-02-12] Peter Provan with Balmain and Norm Provan with St. George.

Provan began his first-grade career at St. George in 1956 and was a member of two grand-final winning sides in 1958 and 1959.

Provan signed with Balmain in 1960 where he appeared in three grand finals during his nine-seasons with the club. He captained the team to one grand-final win, in 1969, against South Sydney and retired at the end of the season.

Selected for one Test, Provan played against New Zealand in Sydney in 1963.

As part of the Australian Centenary of Rugby League celebrations in April, 2008, Peter Provan and John Sattler, captains of the 1969 grand final teams, carried the ball onto the Sydney Cricket Ground before the Wests Tigers and South Sydney match as the last leg of a ball-relay from Birchgrove Oval to the SCG.
