Born in Tonga, Kata moved to New Zealand at 16 years of age to attend Sacred Heart College in New Zealand, which boats rugby internationals Kieran Crowley, Sean Fitzpatrick, Xavier Rush and Taniela Tupou among their alumni.

He represented Tonga at age-grade level before switching to rugby league to join the Auckland-based New Zealand Warriors, who compete in the National Rugby League (NRL), in 2013.

Kata played for the Warriors Under-20s side for two seasons and made his senior Test debut for Tonga in 2014 before making his NRL debut in 2015.

In 2016, he represented New Zealand in international rugby league.

During his time in rugby league, Kata made more than 100 appearances and scored more than 50 tries.

He returned to rugby union in 2019 to join the ACT Brumbies, where he spent three years, and made his Test rugby union debut in 2021.

In 2022, Kata joined fellow Super Rugby side Moana Pasifika for one season before signing with Exeter ahead of the 2022/23 northern hemisphere season.
