MANLY’S Josh Perry says his side has put last week’s disappointing fade-out and the loss of star Brett Stewart behind it and is focused solely on tackling Parramatta on Sunday. &nbsp;<br><br>The Sea Eagles gave up a 20-4 half-time lead against Wests Tigers last week, eventually losing 26-22 as Lote Tuqiri ignited his side in the Monday night thriller. <br><br>In a crushing blow to the side’s premiership ambitions, Stewart has been ruled out for up to five months with a serious left knee injury.<br><br>Perry said Manly’s players were at a loss after the game, but they had moved on quickly and were prepared for the Eels, who lost to St George Illawarra by six points in round one.&nbsp; &nbsp;<br><br>“It was a tough game. But to come back and then get run down in the last five minutes was pretty devastating,” Perry told BigPond Sports Weekend on Saturday. &nbsp;<br><br>“When you’re playing the Tigers, they’re one of those teams you don’t want to give a sniff to. We did that in the second half and you saw what happened. <br><br>“We were sort of at a bit of a loss after the game, asking, ‘How did we lose that one with the possession?’ <br><br>“But there’s a lot of positives and we’ve got to forget that one and get on with Parramatta tomorrow.”<br><br>The extent of Stewart’s injury was confirmed on Tuesday, when scans revealed he had suffered lining cartilage damage. &nbsp;<br><br>Perry said the side had already come to terms with losing their representative fullback.&nbsp; <br><br>“To be honest we’ve done that, we’ve got on with it,” he said. &nbsp;<br><br>“We’ve got a few guys that’ll push up in there and we‘ll be right.”<br>
