Hawthorn's thirst for to be tested ahead of the AFL finals series will see the premiers head north with enthusiasm to play Sydney on Thursday night.

Star winger Isaac Smith says the Hawks aren't treating it as a grand final preview but they'll relish the chance to avenge their round nine defeat to Sydney ahead of another potential date in September.

"One (versus) two on the ladder and it should be a cracking match ... it's great to be playing footy against the best teams at their home ground because it's a genuine challenge," he said.
