Mr Kefu’s other daughter, Olivia, gave an update on the family’s status this morning, while thanking people for their support.
The Wallabies legend, 47, and his family were allegedly attacked in their Coorparoo home in the early hours of Monday morning, leaving four family members with serious stab wounds.
Police have charged a 15-year-old boy with four counts of attempted murder, three counts of grievous bodily harm, and one count each of unlawful use of a motor vehicle, break and enter, burglary and deprivation of liberty.
A second 15-year-old boy is in custody after admitting himself to a hospital in Brisbane’s south later in the day.
A third person remains on the run, with police saying a stolen silver Hyundai iX35 with number plates 435VJP was used in the alleged attack, which they do not believe was targeted.
Olivia Kefu posted an update on her family’s condition on Facebook on Tuesday morning.
“Both Josh and Dad had their surgeries yesterday and are recovering well,” she wrote.
“Madi and Mum will have their operations this morning.
“Thank you to everyone for all the kind messages and support, it means the absolute world to us all.”
Mr Kefu played 60 tests in the forwards for Australia in a seven-year international career.
He finished as the most capped Wallaby number eight of all time.
He was appointed head coach of the Tongan national rugby side in 2016 and coached the squad through to the 2019 World Cup in Japan.
