With the imposing All Blacks looming large, England cannot afford any slip-ups when they tackle a Wallabies outfit reeling from six successive defeats at Twickenham on Saturday.
England skipper Corry knows it, with his players requiring a morale-boosting victory ahead of the formidable challenge New Zealand will present.
"Performance is important, but to be fair, I will take a 6-3 result," said Leicester number eight Corry, who has retained leadership duties for England's penultimate campaign before making their 2007 World Cup defence.
"We are all about winning, and that is where we have got to get back to. We are not going to settle for second best and say it is a learning curve for us.
"We want to go out there and we want to get the result, so pressure from within the camp I think is far greater than what is going on outside it.
"Coming into a new series, especially on the back of what happened in last season's Six Nations, gives us a chance to put a lot of things right," Corry added.
"Against Australia last year (England lost 21-19), we got ourselves in a position to win the game, but we let it slip.
"That hurts like hell, but the great thing with these autumn internationals is that we've got a second opportunity and a chance to put things right.
"It goes without saying that the Australia game last season was very disappointing, and the Six Nations was very poor by our standards. We've got to get back to the situation whereby when we play at Twickenham, we expect to win.
"We know how games should be won, and what needs to be done to get on the right side of the victory."
Corry leads a side boosted by the return of his fellow World Cup winners Ben Cohen, Mike Tindall, Matt Dawson and Phil Vickery, and England will start as favourites, despite last season's difficulties when South Africa, Canada, Scotland and Italy were their only scalps.
Australia suffered a Tri-Nations whitewash earlier this year, and a 26-16 reversal against France in Marseilles simply increased the heat on Wallabies coach Eddie Jones and captain George Gregan.
Corry though, has never featured in a winning England team against Australia and refuses to believe the Wallabies should be written off.
"We are not paying too much attention to what has been said about Australia," claimed Corry.
"We've done a lot of analysis on the France/Australia game, and I thought Australia played very well.
"It was just the final pass didn't go for them, while the French defence was excellent. If you put those two factors as being comparable, then they are two very equally matched sides.
"We haven't started looking at the All Blacks, because that is not our next game."
