Born in Halifax, Barlow started playing rugby league with amateur side Ovenden before joining Wigan at the age of 16. He played in the club's academy sides, but failed to make a first team appearance. He then moved to Australia, where he played in the Illawarra League, but returned to Britain later that year and joined Huddersfield. In autumn 2010, he signed for hometown club Halifax. Barlow left Halifax at the end of the 2012 season to join Swinton.
