4D Risk retaining small footballer (5) Grid entry is ??R?T
1a Warmonger has always warned Korean leaders (7) Must be Hawkeye but I can't think what that would be paired with and my grid entry is now H?N?S??

Penny has dropped at last so disregard my question .Thank you.
4D Best (Bet with s) and its pair is Worst
1a Hawk and its pair is Hacksaw
I have 1a. as HANDSAW
I have hacksaw too to cross with cowman (and ratboy) ?
I thought it was Newman and Baddiel - not that I've ever heard of either of them. Interesting that there seem to be two quite feasible answers.
Chambers has 'hawk from a handsaw', but I felt Hacksaw worked better.
Question Author
Thanks all.
I've gone with handsaw and worst too. Best and worst
The N in handsaw being the crosser down for Newman and Baddiel (Villain ,baddie) and L ( learner)
Question Author
Sorry ,I cut myself off.
The L being ( learner or rookie )
It must be HAWK and HANDSAW (Shakespearean, probably originally 'hawk and harnser' - the latter an old word, still in use in E Anglian dialect, for heron). So the Baddiel/Newman solution is correct.
