Sydney coach John Longmire took no offence to his Brisbane counterpart Justin Leppitsch querying the Swans' contentious use of the stretcher in the final minutes of Sunday's AFL thriller.

Leppitsch was furious after the Lions' three-point loss, hinting the Swans may have intentionally called for the stretcher to treat Callum Sinclair so the umpires would stop play at a crucial point of the match, a decision the AFL admits was incorrect.

"It's really difficult after a game to know exactly what happened," Longmire said of Leppitsch's reaction.
