Former Lions lock Nigel Horton has dubbed aspects of the 2005 squad's training in New Zealand as "pathetic".
Horton attended Lions training sessions as a representative of Predator, the team's training equipment manufacturer.

"The system was designed to give each coach equal time with the players," he told the Sunday Times.

"Andy Robinson had only 20 minutes to spend on scrums, line-outs, rucking and mauling. That's pathetic for a side hoping to compete with the All Blacks."
