I think 21a could be 'every'. E = energy, VERY is a type of flare, and EVERY = all.

15d. BODYLINE. Anagram of i (one) and "led on by". It's acricket term - when the bowler deliberately bowls AT the batsman.

I think the one about SILLY is probably ASININE, but I don't know why.

9a is ENERGID. Frenchman = 'Rene', taunt = 'dig'.About gives energid which is 'a nucleus and the body of cytoplasm with which it reacts'

Thanks Guys.
I had guessed these answers but couldn't see why, (I too think it must be Asinine,which ties in with 7d - Someone 24 wearing jacket(6) ???k?n. I have put Jerkin)
If Jerkin is correct then 9a begins with "e"

Total guess, but "expansive" could be ASIA, "swapping cards" being A (Ace) replaced by NINE.
