Jones grounded over England's WC hopes
Coach Eddie Jones has played down England's World Cup chances while he insists progressing through Pool C is their immediate aim.
The 2003 world champions achieved their biggest winning margin and highest number of points in a game against an Ireland side, who arrived at Twickenham on Saturday knowing a win would have taken them to the top of the world rankings.
Instead, they were outplayed by England throughout to leave Jones in a satisfied mood, but not getting carried away by his side's chances of winning the World Cup in Japan this autumn.
The Australian, who suggested the Red Rose being ahead of Ireland in their preparations for the tournament played a big part in the outcome of the warm-up Test, told BBC Sport: "Our aim is to be the best side in the world, it always has been.
"Are we moving in the right direction? Yes. Are we ready to win the World Cup now? No."
England have one more game - against Italy at St James' Park on September 6 - before jetting off to Japan for their first Pool C game against Tonga in Sapporo on September 22.
And, Jones added: "The only thing we are worried about are [Pool C opponents] Tonga, USA, France and Argentina. We have to get through those games.
"The World Cup is about taking each game at a time and that is our only focus. They are the only teams in our mind."
