Weekend Quick Cryptic 8 by Johninterred

My fellow TimesforTheTimes contributor and expert solver, Phil Jordan, and I are continuing to produce crosswords to fill the gap left by the Saturday Times not having one. The plan is for us to alternate, publishing one a fortnight, and this week it's my turn.

You can find links to the crossword here and the answers below. Feel free to leave any comments or questions here as you would do on TfTT.

No time for a full soluton blog today, but a few may just biff 10A which is a little on the tricky side for a QC but I couldn't resist.
10A Back six teams? {7}
ELEVENS - [back] six -> XIs = ELEVEN (XI in roman numerals) S

At least I resisted the temptation to make it even more fiendish with the (IMO) neater "Six backsides?"!
