To the rear (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

astern

'to the rear' is the definition.
(astern means to the rear on a ship)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for astern that I've seen before include "following behind vessel" , "Towards the back (of a ship)" , "Towards a ship's rear" , "The wake is" , "Backward" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
