Clumsy Phil Dowson will not be cited after nearly hobbling brave ref JP Doyle

The horror moment JP Doyle looks down to see whether or not his foot can be saved. 

Brave ref JP Doyle is understood to be relieved not to have lost his livelihood after an incident involving clumsy Worcester Warrior Phil Dowson. 

The incident occurred in Worcester's 28-20 victory over Newcastle Falcons, when - retreating from a ruck - the cloddish Dowson accidentally steps on Doyle's foot - a vital part component in the international referee's ability to walk. 

Doyle bravely soldiers on and somehow managed to finish off the match before presumably collapsing in the changing rooms. Phil Dowson has not been cited.
