To answer my own question, VMware hides a lot of options for free Player options so you gotta do some digging.
First i ran VMware netconfig tool
sudo /usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware-netcfg by default you should have
vmnet0 (Bridged to: Automatic)
i manually bridged vmnet0 to my first ethernet card so there's no magic, and created new network, vmnet2, and bridged it to the second ethernet card.
Then through the vmplayer GUI added a new Network Adapter: edit VM > (in Hardware tab) "+ Add ..." button > "Network Adapter"
Then got to manually edit the vmware config file to map second Network Adapter to vmnet2. To do that edit you vmx file (~vmware/VMNAME/VMNAME.vmx) and change/set these lines
ethernet1.connectionType = "custom" and
ethernet1.vnet = "vmnet2"
Ta da that should be all
