He stands 2.03 meters tall and weighs 166 kilograms. Condell Park High School was where he studied. He was a professional rugby player, and NFL executives urged him to try out for their International Player Pathway Program after watching videos of him playing rugby league.
He acknowledged that he knew very little about American football and that he had never practiced the sport.

For the upcoming NFL season, which will start in August 2021, Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni has decided to start Mailata at left tackle.
