Very sad to learn about Tiddle's death. I remember very clearly when he was coach of the Junior and Dad's Army rugby teams for Paeroa West in the 1070's He devoted a lot of his time to the Raeroa west Rugby Club and was a great mentor to many of the young me in Paeroa whom came in contact with him. Often, during our training, he used to say"You'll only get out ot it (ie rugby) what you put into it". I have seen Tiddles since I left Paeroa in 1979 but I have always remembered for saying these words and they have helped me many times in my life. My sincere condolences to Barbara and all the Mathieson family. You are foremost in my thoughts and prayers at this time. RIP Tiddles. Pat McAlpine.
