THE Casey Scorpions today pulled the first surprise of the VFL pre-season when they installed former St Kilda and Richmond forward Justin Plapp as their new senior coach.

Plapp was named to replace Rohan Welsh, who had completed two years and was keen to continue.

But talks between Casey and Melbourne culminated in a job offer to Plapp yesterday. He accepted this afternoon.

The 37-year-old has had charge of TAC Cup club Sandringham Dragons for the past three seasons.

He was a Development League coach at Box Hill in 2010 and Williamstown in 2011.

Coming out of the Burnie Dockers, Plapp’s stints at Richmond (1998-99) and St Kilda (2000-02) produced 44 games.
