Staunch supporter? (4)

Ross

I think it could be either:

Which length description are you looking for?:

4

8

I believe this is a double definition.

'staunch' is the first definition.
(I've seen this before)

'supporter' is the second definition.
(I've seen this before)

(Other definitions for stem that I've seen before include "Slender upright part of wine glass" , "Staunch - stalk" , "Check - part of a plant" , "Halt flow" , "branch of family" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
