Ex-All Black Joeli Vidiri told Britain’s Daily Telegraph that he and Lomu took creatine while they were playing Super Rugby with the Auckland Blues in the 1990s.

Both developed the rare kidney disease nephrotic syndrome and Vidiri said "it does make you wonder" about use of the substance. Creatine is a legal amino acid supplement marketed as boosting muscle mass and energy.
