A midfielder, Plunkett played initially at Montmorency and was recruited from the Northern Knights. Selected with the 32nd pick of the 1996 AFL Draft, he was part of a trade which saw Barry Standfield come to the Western Bulldogs. He spent two seasons in the reserves before making his AFL debut in 1999.

Plunkett was delisted by the Bulldogs at the end of the 2000 season but given another opportunity when he was rookie listed by Carlton. He put in a strong performance in the 2001 elimination final win over Adelaide, with 34 disposals and two goals. In 2002 he was a regular member of the team and played 18 games but was let go by the club after a poor showing the following season.

More recently, Plunkett has been involved in the Leading Teams leadership program, which helps sports and work groups with leadership techniques.
