By Wepiha Te Kanawa

A Māori boy from Ngāti Kahungunu has won $10,000 worth of Michael Hill jewellery this morning.

Aaron "Goose" Munro won by naming nine countries competing at the Rugby World Cup in just 10 seconds.

It's not every day you get a chance to win thousands of dollars to spend on diamonds.

Munro says, “When I was asked the question, I was very quick to respond. I was stunned because I didn't know if I won the prize or not.”

In less than 10 seconds Aaron became $10,000 richer.

Munro says, “When it was confirm that I had won the prize, I rang my wife and it's fair to say she was very happy.”

He has been married for 17 years to his wife Grace Munro, but both of their rings went missing.

“Both of us lost our rings, so my first purchase will definitely be new wedding rings,” says Munro.

With $10,000 to spend Aaron wants to get custom made rings with Māori designs for him and his wife.
