Can't be moved into quarters with that attitude! (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

stance

Here is my best explanation:

'that attitude' is the definition.

(stance is a kind of attitude)

'can't be moved into quarters' is the subsidiary indication.

'be moved' indicates an anagram.

'into' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'quarters' becomes 'se' (**).

'cant' with letters rearranged gives 'tanc'.

'tanc' put into 'se' is 'stance'.

'with' is the link.

This clue was last seen in Evening Standard

(Other definitions for stance that I've seen before include "Posture - attitude", "Way of standing, like golfer addressing ball", "Posture; viewpoint", "Bearing", "Posture, standing position", "Attitude or posture", "Position or attitude taken", "Position, at the tee perhaps", "driver preparing to strike" and "Standpoint".)
