Cape Town - With the title all wrapped up, Bidvest Wits have agreed to release Reeve Frosler to the South Africa Under-20 team for World Cup in South Korea.

The 19-year-old full-back has rarely put a foot wrong since being called up to the Wits first team to cover for the injured Nazeer Allie.

And, after bagging his first league winners' medal, Frosler will now link up with his Amajita team-mates as they prepare for the tournament, and could even start when they take on Japan in their opening game on Sunday.

For Students coach Gavin Hunt, however, he will now have to find a right-back to fill in for the youngster as they close the season against Kaizer Chiefs at the FNB Stadium on May 27.

"I don't know who's going to play right-back - we'll find a goalkeeper to play right-back. But we'll send him‚" Hunt said after their win against Polokwane City on Wednesday.

"Sure‚ we must send him. Why not? And we'll find someone to play right-back."

Amajita's preparations for the tournament have not been ideal, with a number of clubs refusing to release players.

To make matters worse, prodigious forward Phakamani Mahlambi - also of Wits - has been ruled out of the competition with a hamstring injury.
