Under the mentorship of coach Gavin Hunt, Bidvest Wits have turned into a well-oiled machine. The man at the helm is no stranger to title success, but the question many are asking is: Can lead his Clever Boys to the first cup title of the season?
There has been a remarkable difference in the performances of the team since Hunt took over at Wits, and this is evident in the amount of times the Students have found themselves in cup finals lately, and they even came close to winning the league last season.
Taking the current campaign into account, it must be pointed out that the depth in the squad is impressive, with both experienced and youthful players, so there seems like there is no excuse for an empty cabinet. However, there are a few worrying factors Hunt will have to keep a close eye on.
One of these factors would be having to keep his star players fit and away from the recovery room, as well as keeping his more experienced and older players motivated and physically fit for the entire season.
Like any coach who is after success, Hunt has a massive task on his hands and a reputation to live up to. There is no denying the passion and great coaching tactics he possesses, but can Wits take to the podium and lift up some silverware for their loyal supporters?
Do you think Wits will be able to win a cup competition or even the league title this season?
