Cape Town - Bidvest Wits released all foreign players who were undergoing trials at the club after only three days of training.

The news was broken to the players on Thursday, July 3 after training when they were told the team has reached its foreign player quota so they don't need more.

Sport24 source at the club revealed that the CEO, Jose Ferreira, instructed coach Gavin Hunt to release the players.

"There were some players who the coach was really interested in giving more time and have a better chance to look at, then and maybe even sign them, but on Thursday they were told that they won't be signed even if they do well, because the team has reached its foreign quota,” the source said. 

“It was painful to both the players and the coach, but there is nothing he could have done.”
