Kiwi international Jordan Kahu has played down a training health scare for standout Brisbane centre Tautau Moga.

The former North Queensland flyer reportedly suffered a heart complaint at training after his inspired Broncos debut in the NRL season-opening win over defending premiers Cronulla last week.

Tom Opacic was considered to be on standby for Moga ahead of Friday's blockbuster derby against the Cowboys at Suncorp Stadium.

But Kahu said on Monday that Moga was expected to play.

"I think that was just precautionary," he said of Moga leaving training.

Moga was named Broncos players' player after he notched 112m from 12 runs against the Sharks in his first NRL game in Brisbane colours.
