these few samples make me wish i had the Metro puzzles every Friday!

the metro newspaper, in the uk, usually publishes a hard puzzle on Friday.
Yesterday's one was easy -- however it's also not symmetric.
Take away the extra clue in r5c1
and you get a much better puzzle!

Are they as hard or harder than the old Metro's Friday puzzles?
If not, I'll just stick to The Times's puzzles.
I don't mind much about symmetry.
Bigtone53 probably meant that thelondonpaper's printed puzzles are decent;
the online puzzles differ from the printed ones, and seem easy.
