Rugby chiefs have signed a sponsorship deal that could put a new advertising logo on the All Blacks' jerseys and shorts for their end-of-season tour of Britain, sources say.

The Herald understands the New Zealand Rugby Union has secured a multimillion-dollar, five-year deal with insurance company AIG, which will replace truck maker Iveco as one of the All Blacks' main sponsors.

The All Black kit now carries the logo of main sponsor adidas.

But the All Blacks' shorts and jersey sleeves could be carrying the AIG logo as early as their tour to the United Kingdom, which starts with a test against Scotland in Edinburgh on November 11.

"The AB jersey looks neat and clean with the number and silver fern. Who cares what everyone else is doing - NZ dont have to be followers."

"At the end of the day the jersey is a piece of cloth. The mana of the 'Black Jersey' is in the deeds and actions of the past players not the item itself."
