Melbourne beat several league clubs to Rowe's signature after he was a 1963 state amateur player. He made the list for 1964 but had to wait until early the next year to make his league debut. He was lucky to make it that far, six years earlier he'd been advised to give the game away after suffering slipped cartilages in both legs within a few weeks. He had been dropped from the senior list before the 1965 season began but fought his way back into favour. After two disposals in his debut as a reserve he failed to register a possession in the next three games.

Appointed playing coach of Shepparton in 1967 he led them to a premiership the next year and in 1969 before returning to the city as captain/coach of VFA side Frankston from 1971 to 1974. Also played for Frankston in 1976.

Returned to Melbourne to serve on the committee between 1978 and 1985, and was recruiting manager in 1983. He was named a life member in 1985.
