Tonga coach and former Wallabies star Toutai Kefu was seriously injured on Monday after being stabbed by intruders at his Brisbane home, as the rugby world rallied around him.
A 15-year-old has been charged with attempted murder. Queensland Police said another boy, also 15, was in custody and they were searching for a third suspect.
The suspects allegedly had an axe, a knife and a machete.
“It is highly likely a burglary that has gone wrong,” said Detective Superintendent Tony Tony Fleming.
The 47-year-old is now recovering in hospital after undergoing surgery.
“You got this great man!! All our love and thoughts to you and the entire Kefu family!!” said a tweet from the Wallabies on Monday.
The All Blacks wrote: “Our thoughts are with Toutai Kefu and his family at this time. A warrior on the field and leader off it, we are pulling for you!”
