Barrie is generally recognised as Australia’s best front-end player. He has a passion for the game that is unequalled. He’s lean, muscular, has a sharp haircut and an even sharper jaw.
If you saw him down the street you would think he was an elite athlete, and you’d be right.
Barrie won a bronze medal in the pairs with Nathan Rice at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne.
In 2016 he was part of the triples team with Aron Sherriff and Mark Casey who won the silver medal at the 2016 World Outdoor Bowls Championship in Christchurch and won another silver medal in the fours.
Further success came as part of the Australian team for the 2018 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in Queensland where he won two silver medals in the Triples and the Fours.
