Repulse (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

repel

'repulse' is the definition.
(I know that repulse can be written as repel)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for repel that I've seen before include "Deflect" , "Drive back like leper" , "Beat back; cause disgust to" , "Successfully resist" , "Drive away like leper" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard, The Sun and The Washington Post.
