Player Bio

At A Glance

Player Honours: -
Brownlow Medal: 2017 votes 2; career votes 50
Previous AFL Club: Fremantle 
Junior Club: Shepparton United (VIC)
Draft History: 2010 Rookie Draft selection (Fremantle) No. 8; 2010 NAB AFL Draft rookie elevation (Fremantle) selection No. 87; 2016 delisted free agent (Gold Coast).

After coming across from Fremantle at the end of 2016, Barlow had his first year at the SUNS cut short by a broken leg suffered against Carlton in round 13. It was the same leg Barlow had previously broken playing for the Dockers in 2010, and required extensive rehabilitation through the remainder of 2017.

Prior to the injury, Barlow had done everything asked of him, averaging 25 disposals and four tackles as well as kicking 10 goals in his 12 games. He mixed his time between half-forward and the midfield in that time, and after undergoing successful surgery on his leg, should be set to make his return in 2018 in a similar position when required.
