The NSW State of Origin team will reportedly lose their annual $1 million VB sponsorship after this series, ending a seven-year association with the Blues.
The Daily Telegraph reports VB are stepping down, with rival brewers Lion Nathan - who have Tooheys - set to join the Blues.
However, it’s not sure who will actually replace VB on the front of the jersey, with an official announcement due shortly.
“There was a suggestion it could be The Star, already a commercial partner with the Blues. NSW players will stay at The Star before game two in Sydney,” read the report on www.dailytelegraph.com.au.
