Corbisiero more than repaid his faith of being selected ahead of more experienced options, by delivering an assured display against Azzurri tighthead Martin Castrogiovanni.
The London Irish loosehead then produced an even more polished performance in the post-match festivities when, as is customary for England debutants, he delivered an ad-lipped rap in front of his new teammates.
A further 57 minutes against France followed, as a replacement for Sheridan, and a full 80 against Scotland, leaving Corbisiero to pinch himself that he is on the cusp of bagging an RBS 6 Nations winner’s medal.
He said: “I feel very privileged to be here and to get the opportunity to play for my country. It’s just been great to be involved.
“It’s always a bit surreal still, it’s happened so quickly – playing in the Saxons and getting called into the fringes to starting my first Test.
“I don’t want to take anything for granted, and I’m happy with any opportunity I get. I want to show the coaches what I can do.
“It was great to have another start this week; I came in off the bench against France.
“Obviously it’s important to remember that injuries come and opportunities come – you’ve got to be ready to take those opportunities when they arise.
“I’ve made the most of them so far and hopefully if they come again in the future I’ll carry on doing the same.
“It’s been great being involved and I’m really starting to feel like part of the team.
“I’ll just keep my head down, keep working hard and hopefully it will come my way. And if it doesn’t it’ll make me work harder in the long-run.
“I’ve got my song out of the way. That was sort of my little party trick and I’ve got it out of the way and it went down quite well with the boys. But I’ll leave on a high note.”
Corbisiero was one of England’s most impressive performers in an otherwise disappointing 22-16 defeat of Scotland at Twickenham.
The victory though does set up Johnson’s men for a Grand Slam if they beat Ireland in Dublin – a feat they have not achieved since Johnson was a player.
But while Corbisiero was quick to grasp the positives from England's laboured performance, he knows they will need to raise their game at the Aviva Stadium.
He added: “The team showed a lot of belief and a lot of strength to come out of that with a win because a lot of sides could have crumbled under that pressure and gone into their shell.
“But we kept fighting and it was like a war of attrition – there were battles all over the park and I think we kept at it. That’ll do us wonders in the long term.
“Ireland are a world-class side, they’ve got world-class players. It’s going to be a tough game.
“We’ll just do our homework, learn our lessons from this weekend and try and go in and give the best performance we can.
“It’ll be a tough environment and obviously there’ll be a lot of emotion flying about from both sides.
“I’m sure the crowd will be loud and getting on to us so to be honest we’ve just got to focus on our game and on playing well, and control what we can control and go out and put in a great performance.”
