Not sure what to watch this weekend? The Herald sports team list their sporting fixtures that have 'must-see' over the next three days.

Wynne Gray - World Snooker Championships - Saturday and Sunday

Live from the Crucible, the World Snooker Championships. Very few of us will ever get into the small audience where coughs, fidgets and worst of all, an audible mobile phone, are distractions for the competitors who range from madness to badness and all points in between. Television coverage is so good and there is always some gem from the crusty cueists who now whisper into the microphones for their work.

Cameron McMillan - Warriors v Bulldogs, Saturday 7.30pm

I was very close to giving up on the Warriors following the dismal display against the Sea Eagles last weekend but when Andrew McFadden named Tui Lolohea at six for Saturday's clash with the Bulldogs in Wellington, I was back on board (even if the ship is sinking). Lolohea at stand-off and Shaun Johnson at halfback should be the long-term plan for the club and it remains an exciting combination and must watch TV for me.

David Skipwith - Raiders v Sharks, Sunday 4pm

This weekend I'll be sure to watch Sunday's NRL match between fourth-placed Canberra and seventh-ranked Cronulla. It should be a tight contest and the clash between Cronulla captain Paul Gallen and Raiders enforcer Josh Papalii alone will make tuning in worthwhile.

Steven Holloway - Leicester City v West Ham United, Sunday 12.15am

Can they do it? Can they? Can they actually? With five games to go in the English Premier League, Leicester are going to do it. Maybe. Tottenham needs Leicester City to drop points in at least three of its five remaining games-and that's if Spurs win all five of their remaining matches. On Sunday morning all eyes will be on Leicester v West Ham, where a Leicester win will surely, surely mean we are about to witness the greatest fairytale in football history.

Kris Shannon - Brisbane Roar v Melbourne Victory, Friday, 9.35pm

What's promising to be a cracking A-League finals series kicks off with a clash between the two most successful clubs in competition history. The A-League often gets a bad wrap on this side of the Tasman but, once you remove the Phoenix from the equation, this season has featured some fantastic football and, as always, the best atmosphere in Australasian sport. Any of the six clubs in the finals could claim the championship and Phoenix fans even have a rooting interest, with new recruits Kosta Barbarouses and Gui Finkler doing their best to leave the Victory on a high.
