World Cup winner Toutai Kefu stabbed in ‘burglary gone wrong’

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!”
