The AFL says Sydney did not break any rules when they cleared onballer Josh Kennedy to return to the field after undergoing a concussion test in Saturday's qualifying final.

Kennedy was checked by doctors but allowed to play on after copping a shoulder bump to the head from Greater Western Sydney forward Steve Johnson in the first quarter of the ANZ Stadium clash.

The Swans were asked to provide more information about the incident but AFL football operations manager Mark Evans on Thursday said the club had not breached the rules.
