Both the Storm and the Bulldogs finished as convincing winners in their respective Grand Final qualifiers and now just 80 minutes remain before we know who will be crowned premiers.

Tonight on NRL Daily, hosts Brad Fittler gives his early analysis on how the 2012 Telstra Premiership will be decided.

“Undoubtedly the Bulldogs' greatest weapon if executed correctly will be the likes of Sam Kasiano and James Graham,” Fittler says.  

“They are the best in the comp at targeting edge defenders in attack, sucking them in and then drawing them out. That skill set will be hard to keep out if they execute successfully.” 

However, Fittler acknowledges the Storm did a good job last week against the likes of Steve Matai and Glenn Stewart, and he also points out that they do have a weakness.

“The Bulldogs need to sort out their core kicking,” says Fittler. “Kris Keating is being charged down far too often and too many balls were being caught on the full by Greg Inglis, something you can ill afford to do against Billy Slater. 

“They are kicking through the line rather than over it, it’s far more risky and leaves a lot of room for error.”
