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

Cameron McMillan - Highlanders v Brumbies, 7.35pm Saturday

Mainly because I'm really hoping the Australian teams go 0-5 this week. The Brumbies gave up the Australian Conference lead last weekend and need to get points in Invercargill to get it back. Nothing like being handed 26-point thrashing and then having take several flights to your next destination. They put 50 points on the Hurricanes in week one, then this month the Chiefs and Crusaders both put 40 on them, in Canberra. So expect plenty of points.

Wynne Gray - Warriors v St George, Mt Smart, 2pm Sunday

Only two more sleeps before we discover if the Warriors have a bounce-back button or are in repeat lie-down mode while the Dragons arrive on a two-game winning burst after their pants were pulled down by the Broncos.

Kris Shannon - Adelaide United v Western Sydney Wanderers, 6pm Sunday

The A-League grand final has its work cut out if it's to surpass last week's semi between the Wanderers and Brisbane, when Western Sydney recovered from a 3-0 deficit to eventually triumph 5-4 in extra time. But the showpiece does represent an intriguing match-up, between an Adelaide side who were winless from the season's first eight rounds and a Wanderers team who last season finished one point off bottom. Whoever wins, the A-League is guaranteed to have a first-time champion.

David Leggat - Leicester City v Manchester United, 1.05am Monday

Leicester City clinching what should be the most celebrated premier league title of them all. A win at Manchester United early on Monday morning will have the Midlands city doing cartwheels. Count me in.
