Cripple (4)

Ross

I think it could be either:

lame

maim

'cripple' is the definition.
(I know that cripple can be written as lame)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for lame that I've seen before include "Hobbling" , "Walking with a limp" , "Limping; weak (argument)" , "Fabric interwoven with metal threads" , "Halting or unconvincing like poor excuse" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald, The Guardian and the Evening Standard.
