Storm warning!
The forecast for Brisbane is:
50% chance of an Oates try in the corner.
90% chance Melbourne is penalised in the play of the ball.
100% likelihood of busy traffic around Suncorp Stadium.

100% chance Slater will take a dive 🤣

To think up posts like this it must take 10% luck, 20% skill 15% concentrated power of will 5% pleasure 50% pain And a 100% reason to remember the name

Now you have to come up with one for the Reds v Chiefs tomorrow night

you forgot 60% chance of rain so increase your distance and have a little patients and slow down in the wet and have some protection or a rain coat. Just take an umbrella 😳😳😂😂😂

What about the actual weather!?

30% chance you parked in a tow away zone and come out after the game to ask "Where's my car"?

Cassie Jamie Stephanie Megan Richard 50% for my elite greyhound?!?!? I hate those Melbourne players!

100% chance that i’ll get a better view from the tv

Aaarrrggghh, the wonders of footy season hey people, if only I were still young enough to play, I spose I could always join a pub comp, you know 2nd division if its still called that, only problem with those comps though is they tend to do more blewing then actually playing footy and I take my footy very seriously when I play, are well, spose I'll just go without and age gracefully.....

Extensive storm damage, activate SES!

100% we brought the thunder.

I’m a Storm fan and man, that’s some heavy sledging 😂😂😂

Iron clad guaranteed that I’m staying dry in my own home and watching.

You guys crack me up.

Who's been playing in the evidence locker

100% chance they'll get beaten . . . Penalty Broncos

Just add water and all hell breaks loose on southeast qld roads
