That sums it up pretty well, essentially we don’t know how using Creatine, particularly in large volumes, will affect these kids in 10, 20 and 30 years’ time. Perhaps their head’s won’t explode, as some of the more hysterical media outlets would have us believe, however is there any point in taking the risk?

Both the player and coach we talked to appear to be suggesting that a good diet and a good workout regime actually completely void any necessity to take supplements.

What is clear is that the players and coaches in schools rugby in Ireland have perhaps the most balanced, reasonable view about supplement taking, and, since the schools themselves are (to a large extent) either turning a blind eye or in denial about their usage, that’s probably the best news of all.
