  1. Honour-guard guy... um... single (9) [vvvexation]
    guy + um + single = honour-guard

  2. Rugby Goal, plus applause (4) [vvvexation]
    rugby goal + plus = applause

  3. Super, trunk gets carried away (9)
    super + trunk = carried away
    wrong definition - 'carried away' clues the adjective, and the answer is the noun

  1. Loquacious craft I heartlessly cultivate (10)
    craft + i + cultivate (heartlessly) = loquacious.
    "heartlessly" is an operator, and 'loquacious' is a slightly off synonym

  2. Note the point, having gotten it wrong (8)
    Note + point + gotten = wrong
    Two standard conventions involved - 'note' as in musical, and 'point' as in compass

  3. Loud note in a song--a shocking thing (6)
    Loud note within (a song) = a shocking thing
