Early life

Born in Wellington, New Zealand, Mara is of Ni-Vanuatu descent through his father, and Tokelauan descent through his mother. He attended St Patrick's College and represented the school in rugby union. Mara played his junior rugby league for the St George club in the Wellington Rugby League competition.

Mara joined the New Zealand Warriors in 2008 for the inaugural season of the Under 20's National Youth Competition. He played 39 games for the Juniors Warriors over two seasons, scoring eleven tries and finishing the 2009 season as the squads' captain.

When he moved into the Warriors' first grade squad, Mara found himself behind Nathan Friend as the team's first choice hooker. He spent much of his time playing for the Warriors' feeder team, the Auckland Vulcans, in the New South Wales Cup.
