Time for a debrief after Auckland City's wondrous club World Cup performances in Morocco. •Spaniard Ramon Tribulietx is New Zealand's coach of 2014. He beats Steve Hansen, Mike Hesson et al. Auckland City were so good they deserved to make the final against Real Madrid. Transforming a New Zealand club team into one that outplays champion professional outfits from the vast football world is beyond amazing. Auckland's ability to control the ball is a revolution, although it has evolved over years of obsessively hard work under Tribulietx's direction.
Wayne Smith, confirmed as an assistant to Steve Hansen for next year's World Cup, says he never thought he would coach the All Blacks again following their triumph in 2011.
