    Could you please explain 5 down clue for crossword number 1045. I think the answer is ‘hurricane’ but don’t know why! Thanks.

      Good question, Trea! The easy bit is ‘Rotten, raunchier’ which signifies an anagram of ‘raunchier’ – but it took me a little while to work out the rest of the clue. ‘Capital’ refers to Wellington and ‘back’ is a rugby player. The Wellington rugby team are the Hurricanes, so a hurricane is a back (perhaps) with this team. Tricky!

      Someone who’s a rugby fan would probably get it straight away 🙂
