Rugby union legend Toutai Kefu has broken his silence for the first time since an alleged horror home invasion that left him fighting for life.
Mr Kefu took to Facebook on Wednesday in the first major update since he was hospitalised with serious stab wounds on Monday.
His wife Rachel and two children, Josh and Madi, were also seriously injured during the alleged incident.
“Humbling to see the outpouring of love and well wishes from family, friends, community members and the general public,” he posted on Wednesday afternoon.
“We are doing well.
“Josh, Madi and myself are out of hospital and we’re hoping Rach will be able to join us tomorrow.”
Police allege the family was attacked by a group of teenagers after they were confronted trying to steal a car at the Kefus’ Coorparoo home.
Mr Kefu sustained serious abdominal wounds that required lifesaving surgery.
Two boys, 15 and 13, have been charged over the alleged incident and remain in custody.
A third boy, 15, is in hospital under police guard.
Mr Kefu said the family felt “very lucky and grateful” for the support.
On Tuesday his other daughter, Olivia, said her father and Josh were recovering well following surgery.
“Thank you to everyone for all the kind messages and support, it means the absolute world to us all,” she posted on Facebook.
